Defence has developed the Health and Recovery Pathway to provide a comprehensive overview of the services and support available to ADF Members and their families from the point at which a serious injury, wound or illness has been acquired, right through the recovery process and return to work.
Information is provided on health assessment and treatment, transportation, rehabilitation services, support for families, transitioning out of the Service, and compensation.
The Member and Family Guide provides information on services and support from a range of different sources, including Defence, other government departments and non-governmental organisations, brought together into a single package.
The Guide is designed as a starting point and does not aim to provide information on managing particular conditions or situations. Individuals are encouraged to supplement the Guide by talking with their commanders and professional service providers.
