15.3.5 Progress Reports
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’.
For the DVA Form D1330 Rehabilitation Progress Report, the provider:
Step 1. Enters client’s name and DVA file number (not Defcare Case ID) in the footer of the document.
Step 2. Complete client details section
Step 3. Document the identified activities for each goal.
Step 4. Provides a summary of the Progress Report.
Step 5. Signs the Progress Report and for new rehabilitation referrals from 29 May 2017, upload the progress report and any other relevant documentation to R&C ISH using the client's unique Transaction Reference Number (TRN). All rehabilitation cases that commenced prior to 29 May 2017 will require you to follow the process of emailing rehabilitation related documentation to the client's DVA Coordinator. Rehabilitation Coordinators are not required to sign the Progress Report.
Step 6. Rehabilitation Coordinators are responsible for transposing information from the documentation submitted by the rehabilitation providers, into R&C ISH. This information includes goals and activities for each goal.
