The Psychiatric IME
On Wednesday 2 May 2018, the Canberra office held an educational event for our clients on the topic “The Psychiatric IME” presented by Dr Derek Lovell, Psychiatrist.
In this session Dr Lovell explored the process and challenges a Consultant Psychiatrist must navigate during the Psychiatric IME.
Dr Lovell explored the topics of Bullying and Harassment, PTSD, Somatic Symptom Disorder and Adjustment Disorder, and the approach and interview techniques required to obtain rapport with the examinee.
It was clear that early intervention strategies are key with managing psychiatric conditions. Attendees were once again very impressed with Dr Lovell’s presentation and his candour.
