On February 01, 2016, Will Davidson LLP hosted an informative presentation on Legal Tests for Health Care Professionals in Lindsay, ON. A blended audience of social workers, massage therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychotherapists and medical assistants were treated to lunch and information surrounding areas they encounter when completing forms and assisting injured patients.
This lunch and learn provided health care professionals the opportunity to gain some in-depth knowledge on addressed topics which included Canada Pension Plan Disability Benefits, Long Term Disability, Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) and Motor Vehicle Accidents. Each topic was presented with a realistic legal example and addressed questions attendees faced on a regular basis.
With further changes on the horizon for Accident Benefit victims it is important health care professionals are comfortable with assisting their patients with forms (if requested) and also submitting forms correctly on behalf of patients to ensure they receive the appropriate benefit to assist when in recovery.
