1.6 Rehabilitation policy development

Last amended 
3 April 2023

Overall policy development for rehabilitation activities covered under Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Defence-related Claims) Act 1988 (DRCA), Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (MRCA) and the Veterans' Vocational Rehabilitation Scheme (VVRS) rests with the Rehabilitation Policy Section of the Rehabilitation, Case Escalation and MRCA Review Branch.

The Rehabilitation Policy Section guides and co-ordinates the development of rehabilitation policies and service delivery models across DVA, to improve the coordination and integration of existing services. The specific rehabilitation policy function was formalised prior to the introduction of the MRCA and charged with coordinating the 'whole of person' approach to rehabilitation adopted by DVA.

More information about DVA's rehabilitation approach can be found on the DVA website's Rehabilitation page.
