This month Dr Lingwood was advised he was successful in his application to the WorkCover Queensland’s Medical and Allied Health Advisory Panel (MAHP).

The MAHP is a team of practitioners who work alongside WorkCover Queensland to provide valuable assistance with rehabilitation and return to work goals through providing professional comment in the following areas:

  • Reviewing treatment requests to ensure they are evidence based, appropriate and required due to the work related condition or injury;
  • Reviewing surgery requests (including item codes) to ensure they are evidence based, appropriate and required due to the work related condition or injury;
  • Complex claim reviews and advice to WorkCover staff to help develop rehabilitation and return to work strategies;
  • Advice to WorkCover staff about communicating with treating practitioners about treatment;
  • Medical report reviews/evaluation (including GEPI report reviews);
  • Provide peer to peer feedback to other practitioners as required, including discussing feedback about report findings and assessments with reporting practitioners;
  • Attend or present forums/educational sessions to our people or other stakeholders; and
  • Helping WorkCover Queensland develop our injury management and return to work programs and strategies.

Dr Lingwood is proud to continue to assist with facilitating evidence-based and best practice treatment, rehabilitation and return to work strategies for injured and ill workers.
