Section 5.2 Experience with motor accident related injuries

Relates to clause 8.18(a) of the Motor Accident Guidelines

SIRA stakeholders highlighted the importance of practitioners having an understanding of motor accident related injuries or other similar trauma. These injuries can often be complex with comorbidity being common.

SIRA acknowledges that not all authorised health practitioners will have had extensive exposure to motor accident related injuries as part of their clinical experience. However, it is a requirement that applicants are able to demonstrate an understanding of the treatment and/or management of motor accident related injuries in order to be considered for appointment.
