How to Maximise the Value of IME Psychiatric Reports

On Thursday, 13th July, Dr Lucas Murphy, Psychiatrist, conducted a lunchtime presentation as part of our Winter Series on "How to Maximise The Value Of IME Psychiatric Reports" at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Hobart to an audience of 23 delegates.

Drawing from his experience as a treating psychiatrist for workers compensation and as an IME psychiatrist, Dr Murphy discussed the differences in how causation is interpreted by a treating doctor in comparison to an IME. Practical tips were also shared which included questions to ask of the IME along with other tips to assist with treatment considerations.  

Positive feedback was given at the end of this event by attendees, with comments such as:

“Very interesting”

“Clear slides and good discussion”

 

Next month, mlcoa TAS rounds out our Winter Series with "Bulling In The Workplace: Implications For Work And Consequences For Mental Disorders" presented by Dr Peter Miller, Psychiatrist on Thursday, 24 August 2017. You can register your attendance here.
