Telehealth for Pure Mental Harm Injury Scale Value Medical Assessments

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic it is currently possible to use videoconferencing (telehealth) for pure mental harm Injury Scale Value (ISV) medical assessments. These assessments can be used as part of settling a CTP claim for claimants who are unable to attend an assessment in person.

A protocol outlines obligations for the appropriate use of this technology by Psychiatrists. A claimant information sheet and consent form has also been developed to support injured people with this process.
