15.3.5 Progress Reports

Last amended 
30 June 2023

Goals vs Activities

Goals are what the client wants to achieve, or the desired outcome that they are working towards.

The rehabilitation activities are the things that the client will do to reach that outcome.

Goals should be specific, and as a general rule, multiple activities will be included to help the person to reach their goal. For example, the goal of ‘improvement to physical functioning’ could have the activities of ‘attend physiotherapy appointment 1 time per week and complete all exercises recommended by the therapist’, ‘walk around the block 4 times per week’ and ‘support from XX (eg. family member) to assist with developing a weekly routine’.
