As an Occupational Therapist and approved provider for TAC and Worksafe to perform Home Assessments, I was interested to read somewhere in your forum(can’t find it again) the opinion that OT’s were biased towards the insurer.
This this not the first time I have seen this opinion expressed and in my practice, I have been asked by legal offices to reassess injured workers and indeed found erroneous logic and poor clinical recommendations made.
The problem largely lays in the referral system and I would argue that referrals should be coming from the GP (as with any other form of therapy) rather than the Case Manager. I am currently exploring how to test this system.
