mlcoa QLD Update

October Update:

mlcoa invites you to stop by and say hi to our marketing team Vanessa Daniel and Fernanda Corazza at the Injury Management and Return to work conference on the 31.10.2018 in Brisbane. We look forward to catching up with you to share what is new and happening in mlcoa!

mlcoa congratulates all the winners and finalists at the 2018 Safe Work and Return to Work Awards. You can read and their stories here.

Thank you for all your support and attendance at our educational sessions over 2018. Please join us for the last sessions of the year!

Educational Events:

Neurodiversity in the Workplace

This joint educational session will start by introducing the concept of ASD/Asperger’s, including a discussion of traits, prevalence of diagnosis, contradictions and misconceptions.

Mr John Dwyer will then outline how this translates into management issues such as: identifying neurodiversity, adjusting communication in conflict resolution, harnessing the strengths/talents of an ASD person, exposure to discrimination complaints etc.

The focus of this discussion will be on individuals who fall into the Asperger’s Syndrome diagnosis (now a sub-set of ASD). People with Asperger’s tend to be high/very high functioning such that their condition is often not readily identified (even by them in many instances) and instead they come off as ‘quirky’ or worse, rude, stubborn and obstructive.

Back Pain & Litigation – Cairns

How can the claims manager/solicitor understand back pain when the subject confuses the medical profession? Two doctors might reach opposing views on pathology, causation, functional incapacity and prognosis when examining the same patient. The problem is compounded when the medical terminology is not understood by the person managing the claim.

This presentation will discuss and explain spinal terminology for non-medical professionals, including:

  • Pathologies
  • Examinations
  • Investigations
  • Treatment of common spinal problems

Presenter: Dr Simon Journeaux, Orthopaedic Surgeon
