Training Program:

Core Module

This module is designed for doctors who have never successfully completed the module and do not hold this accreditation. Accreditation requires you to attend the session and complete the assessment tasks successfully.

The successful completion of the module will lead to the awarding of the Core accreditation.

Stream 2 – If you have already successfully completed the Stream 1 module and if you wish to undertake continuing education, then you are encouraged to enrol in the Core Stream 2 Module.

Stream 2 modules do not have any assessment requirements, and they will help you improve your proficiency by updating your skills in applying the AMA4 Guides and/or other prescribed assessment methods.

Please note: Core (Stream 1) is the mandatory module that must be undertaken to gain accreditation in any speciality (body parts) module.

Module information

This module covers:

    • Transport Accident Commission
    • The Wrongs Act
  • The ways in which the Guides are modified by legislation. This includes the removal of some parts of the Guides, and the replacement of some parts with alternative prescribed methodologies.
  • The ways in which binding Court Decisions have clarified how parts of the Guides are to be interpreted.
  • The way in which some common medical terms are given different meanings in the Guides.
