WorkSafeNB, in consultation with psychologists from across New Brunswick, has updated the three psychology forms to align them with significant changes in diagnostic criteria, the development of new empirically supported treatments and changes to the Worker’s Compensation Act.
Complete this form if an employee experiences a work-related injury or illness. You must submit this to WorkSafeNB within three days of the: date of the accident if the injury or illness may entitle the worker and/or their dependent(s) to wage replacement or medical treatment under New Brunswick’s Workers’ Compensation Act; date the employee is diagnosed with an occupational disease; or date you are notified of the accident/injury or illness by the employee.
Submit this form when applying for WorkSafeNB benefits, such as lost wages and/or medical treatment (physiotherapy, medication, etc.), due to a workplace injury or illness. You must complete this form and send it to WorkSafeNB within one year from the date of the accident/injury or illness.
The Initial Psychological Assessment Report (IPAR) asks for information necessary for WorkSafeNB to make an acceptance decision on a claim. WorkSafeNB must determine whether the worker’s injury meets requirements for acceptance under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
The Psychology Progress Report (PPR) asks for information necessary to help us understand a worker’s recovery, accommodation options and more. This helps us review progress and opportunities for additional support.
The Psychology Discharge Report (PDR) asks for information necessary to close a course of treatment. It helps us understand the outcomes of that treatment and review overall improvement and possible need for additional support.
