'Sing the same tune'

Torika Tokalau
Friday, March 28, 2014

LABOUR Ministry medical assessor Dr Rauni Tikoinayau is urging all doctors to attend the two-phase training in the evaluation of permanent impairment.

Dr Tikoinayau said the training would allow doctors to sing the same tune when making assessments for workers looking to get compensated for employment injuries.

"This training is of very high standard. You won't expect this anywhere else," Dr Tikoinayau said.

"Dr Dwight Dowda is one of the best expert in Australia for permanent impairment training."

He said permanent impairment assessment was not a formal curriculum at universities.

"Universities only teach doctors how to assess and treat patients.

"So, for the doctors to be singing the same song and the same tune, they have to use a particular guide so we can reduce the disparity in assessment."
