Our Focus Areas 

One of the goals of the Educational Case Management is working collaboratively with the health and welfare systems so to ensure that our client’s needs are being met by the most appropriate service/clinicians and to accommodate for those clients who are marginalised from the health and welfare systems.

  • flexibility, commitment, passion, and team approach

  • willing to change their work practices to fit in with client’ support needs

  • willing to coordinate their activities with others to better meet the needs of the individual-person centred approach

  • sustain professional standards when liaison with medical professionals

  • raise awareness of the needs of clients which may be continuously changing and often presenting with challenges

  • not judge the client and their family, carers, or support persons

  • be aware of the client’s daily functioning (home, community,  work, school) and address areas of concern 

  • support behavioural plans at home and across other settings such as school and in group homes 

  • refer clients to other services when necessary.

  • continue professional development regularly so to better assist complex clients and their specific support needs and be always well equipped with current evidence-based strategies.

is having on their quality of life.
