INTRODUCTION
The Canadian Society of Medical Evaluators (CSME) and the Canadian Academy of Psychologists in Disability Assessment (CAPDA) are pleased to announce our second annual C-CAT training and certification program. Since its inception, the C-CAT program has been widely acknowledged as the leading program in Ontario uniquely structured to cover all-important skills and legislation required for clinicians to participate in the Ontario Catastrophic Impairment determination process in accordance with the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). The C-CAT program addresses the legislation from the perspective of all clinicians, including physical medicine, mental behavioural and allied health professionals. Our expert legal facilitators will also analyze recent case law and present upcoming trends and practical skills for clinicians preparing testimony relating to catastrophic cases.

 
TRAINING COURSE GOAL:
The purpose of the C-CAT Conference and Certification program is to harmonize and improve quality standards for competent, independent practice as a medical expert within the specific area of Ontario Catastrophic determinations. The Certification Program assesses the minimal competencies necessary to practice as a medical legal expert in this field. The Certification Program is intended to be complementary to national standards of competence within a specific health care specialty, and enhance the competent, ethical, and professional practice as a medicolegal expert. The C-CAT is not intended to replace any existing College or Board regulatory functions, but rather to augment those processes. The vision for the C-CAT is to be recognized as the standard of quality for medicolegal experts undertaking these evaluations in accordance with Ontario law.

CLINICAL SKILLS TRAINING - Friday, March 23, 2018 @ 7:00AM to 5:00PM
Participants will survey the eight key criteria listed in the SABS for motor vehicle accidents in Ontario. The session will cover both the current framework, required for accidents on or after June 1, 2016, as well as impairment rating models required for accidents here prior. It is designed for a wide range of professionals including lawyers, insurers, and quality assurance personnel, triers of fact, and assessors who conduct catastrophic determination examinations.

MENTAL BEHAVIOURAL TRACK - Saturday, March 24, 2018 @ 7:00AM to 5:00PM

Training Physical Track: AMA Guides 4th edition
To provide participants advanced in-depth training on impairment rating as it pertains to the formal evaluation of mental/behavioural and neurocognitive/behavioural conditions specific to the pre- and post-2016SABS catastrophic criteria of 4, 5, 7 and 8. It is designed for clinicians including psychiatrists, clinical and rehabilitation psychologists, neuropsychologists and occupational therapists that are seeking comprehensive training in the assessment of these specific aspects of the catastrophic determination purposes.


PHYSICAL TRACK  - Saturday, March 24, 2018 @ 7:00AM to 5:00PM
