Timely and complete reports help workers receive appropriate medical care when they need it. This is a legislative requirement and also a standard outlined in agreements with the New Brunswick Medical Society (NBMS), New Brunswick Chiropractors Association (NBCA) and New Brunswick Private Practitioners of Physiotherapy (NBPPP). Physician, nurse practitioner and chiropractor reports are due within 72 hours of the injured worker’s appointment.
More help for workers with psychological injuries
WorkSafeNB is committed to superior service, and this means appropriate and timely care to workers. To help ensure such service, we've created a new Initial Psychology Assessment Report (IPAR), Psychology Progress Report (PPR) and Psychology Discharge Report (PDR).
Over the last 10 years, there have been significant changes in diagnostic criteria, the development of new empirically supported treatments and updates to the Worker’s Compensation Act. These new forms support these changes. It keeps reports succinct and relevant to the injury – identifying critical information that meets the needs of workers, psychologists, employers and case managers.
Medical Form 8-10
|WorkSafeNB has recently combined its medical forms 8 and 10. The new form, developed in collaboration with NBMS, requires clarity on worker abilities. Evidence shows workplace connection is good for mental, physical and emotional health. Employers have a duty to accommodate reasonable restrictions and limitations. Even if a worker is able to work one hour per week, there are positive benefits. Use Medical Form 8-10 for both initial and progress visits.
