  • Collect and analyse patient information to assist other health professionals.
  • Assess patient and family functioning on an ongoing basis, providing or recommending community services as conditions change.
  • Coordinate services with other multi-disciplinary team members for home care and equipment, or referral service to community resources such as day care and long-term care facilities.
  • Assist with transfers of patients via commercial flight or by air ambulance for further treatment abroad.
