RWPN will be changing how we refer to our registrant professionals in the future. Over 40% of our registrants voted in our consultation and 90% of them were in favour of the proposed name change. Henceforth we will be using the titles Vision Rehabilitation Specialist and Vision Habilitation Specialist. We are specialist professionals with expertise and are registered as such. We no longer feel the term "officer" or "worker" reflects our qualification.
Many work settings will continue to use job titles such as Rehabilitation Officer Visual Impairment (ROVI) but we hope that the new name will be adopted locally in due course. Read more RWPN Professional's Name Change - statement.pdf
