Workshop Information

What will you learn?

The Combined Meeting aims to help participants gain greater insight into the approach to medico-legal medicine and impairment and disability assessment following personal injury. You will also learn about clinical updates, new devices, technology, implants and modalities of interventional treatment, jurisdictional matters and requirements of the various statutory boards, such as SIRA (WCC, MAA ), TAC (Victoria) and QComp (QLD).

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Competence in report writing, expert evidence, and impairment rating.
  • Medico-legal reasoning for the rational clinical decision making process, e.g. reaching conclusions regarding impairment assessment and whether treatment is reasonable, necessary and causally related to the injury.

This includes senior surgeons and surgeons retiring from active procedural practice who wish to maintain an interest in patient surgical care by doing medico-legal work involving seeing and assessing patients, reviewing their investigations, doing clinical examinations and taking relevant history.
