Post-Concussion Syndrome/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Long-Term ACC objectives

Anthony Jordan made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

The request was successful.

From: Anthony Jordan

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

Please provide the following:

1/ Specific to Concussion and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury(s), what scope of practice does the ACC deem best to review such claims during an External Medical Review Panel

2/ Would it be acceptable for any professional not deemed within that scope to participate in a decision or take any part in influencing a decision

3/ Besides the published Concussion guidelines of 2006 collated by various entities and professionals, what process/resources does the ACC use to scrutinize information contained in the guidelines to ensure the best possible information and evidence-based practices are been used in New Zealand to identify, support and prevent Post-Concussion Syndrome/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

4/ (Given recent research and evidence-based practice findings) Does the ACC intend to establish a service whereby those who have been identified as having a 'hidden' or 'neglected' Concussion/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury(s), can access

As it is my understanding the Concussion service is limited to those with an actual diagnosed Concussion claim within twelve months of injury(s)

Yours faithfully,

Anthony Jordan
