November News 2023
On Friday the 13th of October we had our bi-annual Revive Team Day. We took the opportunity to get dressed up for spooky season! The theme of our day was understanding our particular motivators as well as planning and reviewing our internal processes and procedures. We shared a yummy lunch and then created some interesting collages depicting our sense of "Team" at Revive
Clinical team weekend
Last month our clinical team attended a weekend learning and upskilling on the topic of Low back pain. The team had a fantastic professional learning experience with James Schomburgk (Lecturer in Sports and Orthopaedic Medicine) on an evidence based review on assessing and treating low back pain. Our practitioners covered this in depth topic over 2 full days learning a plethora of treatment strategies of which contain hands on techniques and exercise based rehabilitation to ensure our patients are receiving the best level of up to date clinical care in their injury management. So book in now with any low back injuries that you have been experiencing and our practitioners will develop and implement a treatment strategy to get you back to doing what you love.
Goodbye Mindbody and Hello Cliniko
This is big news! We have decided to make the move and change our practice management software! The decision has not been an easy one as we have been with MindBody for over 14 years. The change means a few things that you will notice:
- we will no longer have an app
- you will need to book on the website to book online
- your reminders from us will look a little different
- We really believe the short-term pain of the change will be worth it
- we will be doing this transition while the clinics are open and operating so we will have 2 systems running while data is being transferred - this is happening on Thursday 2nd November.
- Please be patient with us as we make this big move to a better, Aussie owned cleaner and more user-friendly platform.
