    Author: Health Times

Physio Inq, an award-winning Australian allied health provider has announced plans to tackle therapist burnout and accelerate their national expansion by appointing Doug Devellerez to People Development and Experience Manager.

Devellerez began his career as a clinical physiotherapist working in pediatrics and joins Physio Inq after a number of years working in the United Kingdom and Canada.

During this time Devellerez transitioned from the clinical side of physiotherapy practises to HR consulting where he managed staff training and development, engagement of community and scaling of companies.

In his new role, Devellerez pairs his clinical background with his people management skills to oversee the growth of the Mobile & Community Service teams to meet the rapid demand Physio Inq are experiencing.

Doug’s previous training gives him a deeper understanding of what makes allied health therapists tick and how Physio Inq can better support, develop and retain them.

Jonathan Moody, founder of Physio Inq said; "We created the role of People Development Experience Manager because we value the wellbeing of our therapists.

We believe that backing them and encouraging longevity in the role gives our patients the very best care. Therapists are supported and they can focus entirely on the patient and the patient's care."  

Speaking of the appointment, Doug Devellerez said, "I'm excited to join Physio Inq because I've frequently seen the lack of support other clinics have for their therapists.

The toll on the practitioner is lasting and the industry has lost too many excellent care providers because of mismanagement.

Physio Inq has an innovative model that works to reduce the burden on therapists. When therapists are supported the patients reap the full benefits of their expertise."

"I'm looking forward to being in a position where I can directly influence and increase the wellbeing of our people."

Samantha Bowen, Principal Advisor to Leading Age Services Australia, said: “Burnout is creating a huge toll on our current and future workforce capacity. Maintaining essential services, including therapy and allied health services, is so important and banishing burnout among therapists is critical.

“We see many organisations and LASA Members implementing increasingly innovative wellbeing opportunities for their workforce.

This is a vital move for clients, allied health professionals, and providers to sustain care and inspiration to keep all Australians healthy well into the future.”

Jonathan Moody is confident the role will further enhance employee satisfaction and boost their commitment to Physio Inq which is essential for the national growth of services.

The Physio Inq family, along with its Founders Moody and Irene Georgakopoulos, and the members of the Advisory Board all warmly welcome the addition of Doug Devellerez to the Physio Inq Team.
