Registrations are now open for the Independent Review Office (IRO) Sydney Seminar to be held on June 15.
The seminar, A Focus on Psychological Injuries and COVID-19, to be held at Aerial UTS Function Centre in Ultimo from 9.30am-3pm, will be live streamed and recorded and made available on the IRO website following the event.
Two trends that stand out in statutory personal injury claims in 2022 have been the increase in psychological injury claims and the impact of COVID-19.
The seminar aims to zero in on the practical impacts of these ‘mega-trends’ on personal injury claims. The questions we’ll be asking include:
- how the personal injury system has responded to COVID-19 to date, what are the emerging issues and what are the learnings?
- how increased mental health issues in the community have been reflected in increased psychological injuries in the personal injury system – and what this means in the short and long term?
The seminar will bring together experts and practitioners with a range of perspectives on these issues, and include a substantive law focus on psychological injuries.
Lunch will be offered, providing an excellent opportunity to catch up with colleagues and IRO team members.
Attendance at the free seminar complies with Continuing Professional Development requirements.
