Directory of permanent impairment assessors

Comcare's Directory of Permanent Impairment Assessors (Comcare Directory) contains a list of medical specialists and other practitioners who have taken part in training provided by Comcare to assess claimants under the Guide to the Assessment of the Degree of Permanent Impairment Edition 2.1.

The official consolidated version of the Guide can be viewed on The Federal Register of Legislation website.

While any legally qualified medical practitioner can conduct a permanent impairment assessment under the Comcare scheme, the Comcare Directory is the main resource used by claims managers for referring an injured worker to a permanent impairment assessment.

This list is also accessed by injured workers and litigant lawyers, and may be used for assessing initial or ongoing liability claims as well.

How do I become a Comcare trained medical assessor?
