Descriptions of services
Back to topWhat are disability management services?
CRS Australia's primary role when providing disability management services is to help people with a disability, injury or health condition to choose, get and keep employment. We:
- assess a person's rehabilitation and employment assistance needs
- develop and manage individually tailored rehabilitation programs
- draw up a written rehabilitation plan together with our clients, describing the steps that will be taken with them to reach their goal
- work with clients to maximise their participation and employability.
The disability management process assists clients to come to terms with their disability, injury or health condition and its impact on their options as a job seeker and their daily life.
It is a journey over a period of 6 to 12 months that focuses on short-term interventions that will reduce the impact of barriers and build on a person's skills and strengths to assist them to reach their goals at the end of their program.
Skills developed in the program will also hold the person in good stead for their future employment and disability management needs.
Success for the client can be defined as the attainment of their program goal, which is usually when they return to their job or get a suitable job and maintain it.
However, for some clients, success can also be defined by the client achieving steps within the rehabilitation plan – for example, learning and applying strategies to manage their disability, identifying a longer term vocational goal, developing job seeking skills or returning to work in an unpaid role as a volunteer.
Back to topInitial rehabilitation assessment
The initial rehabilitation assessment aims to establish rapport and engage a person early in their vocational rehabilitation program. It is an information gathering process that identifies the person's barriers to work and ways to overcome these barriers.
This assessment is the tool used to determine if CRS Australia can assist a person with disability management.
Back to topFunctional education
The process of educating a person with an injury or disability, or a person who is at risk of an injury, on strategies to maintain good physical and mental health at home and/or in the workplace. It helps a person to take responsibility for maximising function, avoiding injury or further aggravation.
Back to topFunctional capacity evaluation
An assessment of a person's physical capabilities for work. Determines functional limitations based on physical examination, objective evaluation of performance and reporting.
Back to topPhysical conditioning assessment/program
Physical conditioning assessments are designed to assess all types of general health and fitness of a job seeker. The assessment can consider a range of physical activities, from fitness-related to work-related.
Physical conditioning programs are exercise programs designed to restore a person's physical capacity and maximise function, both at work and home. They consist of exercises that improve strength, endurance, mobility, flexibility, motor control and cardio-pulmonary fitness.
Back to topVocational assessment
The assessment determines a vocational goal and identifies a range of suitable employment options. This is based on the person's transferable skills, current abilities and interests, via an assessment of knowledge, skills and competencies, current work capacity and any restrictions for work.
Back to topVocational counselling
Vocational counselling assists an employee or job seeker explore realistic job options, to strengthen job maintenance skills and to maintain motivation to get or return to work.
Back to topWorkplace assessment
The assessment forms the basis for a safe return to work by assessing the suitability of work duties and to gain a better understanding of the nature of the employee's work. It assesses the physical, psychosocial, cognitive and communication demands of the job.
The assessment forms the basis for facilitating a safe return to work with either the same job with the same employer, a new job with the same or a new employer.
Back to topLabour market analysis
Identifies current national, state, regional and local employment and occupation trends for specific occupations and employment characteristics. Usually done as part of a vocational assessment.
Back to topWork training placement
A work training placement is a no cost arrangement to place a job seeker into a work environment for a specified period. The arrangement is negotiated between the employer, the job seeker and CRS Australia.
Back to topJob search and placement
Job seeking and placement is critical to achieving the overall goal of getting a job or returning to work. This includes assistance with job search techniques, resume and application writing skills, interview techniques, and other assistance required by the job seeker.
