The Scheme Project

By |2016-05-15T21:28:00+00:00May 31st, 2013|Advocacy, News, Work / System|

You can all imagine why The Scheme Project caught my attention and you can all understand why my pledge was not only made in seconds it was supported (and increased) by my husband Theo who equally saw the benefits in Kris's project. As frustrating as it is being left without any income and medical support after my workplace accident and having my fair share of rants to expose, I actually appreciated Kris's professional approach to his project and his intent to make the documentary up front but not personal. He's not looking for tantrums, witch hunts, singling out of fraudsters and unethical behaviour but rather aiming at exposing the realities in hope of making a change. At the end of our conversation we both agreed that life's great knowledge of 'health first' doesn't seem to be part of WorkCover's culture. The support just isn't there, not in treatment, not in standards, not financially and certainly not in return to work. What does Kris need? Your signatures and your pledge (pledges are not collected unless Kris reaches his target). 'You' may be an injured worker, family member of an injured worker or employer, a treating practitioner, medical examiner, conciliator, lawyer, investigator, WorkSafe agent staff member, Minister, anyone associated with the WorkCover system in fact any worker or employer, we all deserve better quality protection.

Spectacular ‘playful’ resource

By |2017-12-11T09:42:21+00:00January 28th, 2012|Learn, News, Professional Resources|

This is truly a brilliant interactive resource that allows the user to view specific muscle groups within the pelvis and locate the larger nerves in the pelvis, including the pudendal nerve. Almost like building a 3d version at your own pace (yes, you can unbuild it!). Be sure to scroll the smiley face up and down the right side bar.
