Doctors train on permanent impairment

By TORIKA TOKALAU
Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Update: 2:21PM MORE than 30 doctors attended phase one of the training in the evaluation of permanent impairment in Suva today.

According to Ministry of Labours medical assessor Dr Rauni Tikoinayau, the training is part of their groundwork before the new Workers Compensation Reform is put in place.

He said upskilling doctors is the way forward for Fiji as they look to reduce the number of backlog of cases and have a streamline process in place where citizens of Fiji can get their claim for compensation faster.
