Evaluation of treatment cycles for veterans

25 Feb 2021

General Practitioners (GPs) and Allied Health Providers are invited to participate in the evaluation of DVA’s treatment cycle arrangements. 

On 1 October 2019, DVA introduced new allied health referral arrangements, known as the treatment cycle. DVA is committed to listening to the views of health care providers that treat DVA clients and has engaged the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to evaluate the treatment cycle. 

We encourage all GPs who have referred DVA clients to allied health providers under these arrangements, and allied health providers working under the new arrangements, to participate in the evaluation. 

The evaluation involves an online survey which will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. You will not be identified in any way and the decision to participate is entirely voluntary. 

Other key stakeholders such as health provider peak associations can also take part by using the Stakeholder Engagement Form.
