North West Community Rehabilitation (NWCR) is an innovative service and workforce strategy providing community rehabilitation service for people who have neurological or age-related progressive conditions in North West Queensland.
We are focused on providing high quality and evidence-based rehab to the people of Mount Isa, developing our local workforce and supporting students through clinical placements.
The NWCR is a community based, student-assisted inter-professional neurological and aged rehabilitation service. We provide a year-round continuous service, with ongoing group-based programs, telehealth and in-reach rehab services into Mount Isa Hospital. Participants can be referred by their GP, hospital, nurse, allied health professional or self-referral.
This interdisciplinary James Cook University student-led service provides intensive rehabilitation blocks three times per year through individual and group-based programs. NWCR is supported by a Senior Clinical Lead Occupational Therapist, Clinical Lead Physiotherapist, Indigenous Rehabilitation Assistant and part time Administration support.
The program is based in Mount Isa at the Centre for Rural and Remote Health (CRRH) and is funded by the North West Hospital and Health Service (NWHHS). NWCR is a collaboration between NWHHS, North West Remote Health (NWRH) and Gidgee Healing.
