Dr Quintner again!

Dr John Quintner asked that I post an article he has written commenting on acceptance of ‘RSI’ type disorders by the Accident Compensation Commission in New Zealand.

Here is a link to the article entitled

“FIBROMYALGIA AND NEW ZEALAND’S ACCIDENT COMPENSATION SCHEME”

on my blog site ‘Insult and Injury’.

Here is the link:

No coverage by ACC in New Zealand for ‘RSI’ type disorders!

About Tasworkdoc

As an occupational physician in private medical practice in Hobart, Tasmania - the southernmost state of Australia, I see workers referred by their general practitioners with various types of work-related injuries and diseases. These are mostly musculoskeletal injuries, both of traumatic and gradual onset as well as various associated psychological disorders. With interaction with patients for treatment and providing advice about rehabilitation, I have the opportunity, first-hand, to observe interactions between individual patients and compensation systems. I also conduct independent medical assessments, including impairment assessments for musculoskeletal injuries and asbestos-related disease compensation. This provides another perspective of workers within compensation systems.
