Complex Case Management
Workplace injuries can become complex due to the the nature of the injury itself, associated psychological problems or due to the difficulties that sometimes occur with breakdown in relationships with the employer and/or their workers compensation insurer. Often this occurs as a result of breakdown in communication.
Our doctors can assist by pro-actively communicating with all parties involved in the management to ensure the most appropriate treatment and rehabilitation is recommended, agreed with insurer and put in place.
Our doctors can take on the role of Primary Treating Medical Practitioner as defined in Tasmanian Workers’ Compensation legislation with your agreement after discussions with your referring general practitioner. When our doctors take on this role they will usually issue the relevant medical certificates.
