Wounded Injured and Ill Forum 2014
The Assistant Minister for Defence, Stuart Robert MP, and the Chief of Army, Lieutenant General David Morrison AO, addressed the forum.
Wounded, injured and ill soldiers and their families shared their personal experiences during recovery and focused on the healthcare and support services available for non-operational injuries and illnesses.
Army’s Support to Wounded Injured and Ill Program was established in 2008 to meet the needs of an increasing number of wounded, injured or ill personnel resulting from operational deployments overseas.
The program has established procedures for coordinating the clinical, rehabilitation and personnel management aspects of a wounded or injured member’s recovery.
Through activities such as the Wounded, Injured and Ill Digger Forum, Army continues to refine and develop its policies, framework and processes for supporting affected soldiers and their families.
