Our exciting new clinic, BISA Connect, commenced last week, with 6 inaugural students placed with us to facilitate this service.
The clinic is made up of an Interdisciplinary team of Allied Health students, overseen by Brain Injury SA clinicians, that aim to address service delivery gaps for people with an acquired brain injury, by offering free allied health support to people who are without a source of funding or experiencing a funding shortfall for particular supports.
This will include being able to support people with a concussion that is creating long term impacts on their lives by offering supports that they may otherwise miss out on. Additionally, this clinic also provides real workplace experience for allied health graduates participating in the program, enabling improved work ready skills upon graduation.
Across the first week, our students participated in induction and orientation to become familiar with the services they will be offering, ensuring they are fully equipped to provide support to clients. They all have expressed their excitement for the workplace learning opportunity, and their anticipation of a fabulous first clinic.
