Who is a Workplace Rehabilitation Consultant?
Workplace Rehabilitation Consultants (WRCs) come from a variety of backgrounds - including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, psychologists and rehabilitation counsellors – bringing a breadth of talent and perspectives to the space.
There is a strong industry body, the Australian Rehabilitation Providers Association (ARPA) drawing together those who operate in this sector.
