The Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research (ISCRR) is conducting a forum in early December in Melbourne to discuss this important subject.
See my earlier post on this subject – “Are Our Compensation Systems an Occupational Hazard”
Here is a link to the information about the ISCRR forum.
I urge you to attend.
As an occupational physician in private medical practice in Hobart, Tasmania - the southernmost state of Australia, I see workers referred by their general practitioners with various types of work-related injuries and diseases. These are mostly musculoskeletal injuries, both of traumatic and gradual onset as well as various associated psychological disorders. With interaction with patients for treatment and providing advice about rehabilitation, I have the opportunity, first-hand, to observe interactions between individual patients and compensation systems. I also conduct independent medical assessments, including impairment assessments for musculoskeletal injuries and asbestos-related disease compensation. This provides another perspective of workers within compensation systems.
