  • Overview

This presentation is aimed at Physiotherapists working in Victoria and in particular physiotherapists who have patients whose treatment is funded by WorkSafe or the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). Understanding how compensation systems really operate can have an immediate and significant impact on the bottom line of a physiotherapy practice. In summary, this presentation will focus on the ability to achieve a better commercial outcome when treating compensable patients.
