From ACC News October 2003, this outlines the so-called rehab schemes they are offering / requiring as part of the EXIT STRATEGY - it appears often unlawfully, without actually incorporating them in rehab plans according to the process required by the Act.

blah blah blah

Just to add a bit of colour as to how this may work for you, as it did for me :

My limp-pathetic-negligible work trial to gain 'valuable experience' was trumpted as a MARVELLOUS SUCESS ; after getting past the traumatic coercion of CM virtually telling me:

'Stuff ya, if you don't do it, if you don't like it (and arrogantly dismissing the lack of real standardised qualification needed for the position) - say goodbye to your Compo'.

Yeah, they'll fictionalise all sorts of crap. Looks even better on paper.
'right'

What a very honest and frank admission. And I thought ACC spokes people were all liars quote........."Spokesperson Angus Barclay says the organisation has already started working on some of the issues and problems the study identifies. He says vocational rehabilitation is a new area for ACC and it committed to improving their ability in helping people get back to work." end quote. This proves ACC has only been going for exits, now they are admitting it.

Oh to have had that document ten years ago!!!

What a difference my life would have been, if they stuck to that.

The outcome may have been the same, but least it wouldnt have cost me an arm and a leg (so to speak) and a fuzzed up brain as well, with no hope of ever working again.

Cheers

I took note of that too Jocko.

Take note that this document was done in 2004 and they are still not supplying Vocational Rehabilitation. Wonder if the ACC CEO was asked what improvements have been done to fill in the gap of the policy and the legislation requirement by law.

After reinstatement in June 2003,
the first IRP was blank...
Later, when CM came back from maternity leave
5 assessments were "injected"...
(to "see if anything could be done by ACC to sort out my injury problems"... =too late )

Which done over a lengthy period, have shown ACC's dodgy med reports,
for what they are...
= B...S... and wrongfully promoted by ACC for 26 years...

:wub: Hi everyone ...

Thanks NoDrsl ... hitting the 6 inch nail with a sledge hammer

In ernies post ...

The fancy names ACC come up with me was Work Hardening , Activities based programme.

I see under Work Preparation Programme:

Manage Pain

Regain Physical Strength

Blah blah blah ...

:rolleyes: I had a mechanical / structurely damaged injury that recquired remedial surgery.

:wacko: How does riding a bike , as instructed by physio guy at hospital , ever going to be appropiate treatment for mechanical / structurely damage that requires remedial surgery ?

:wacko: How can I manage pain , regain physical strength , blah blah blah when the injury was mechanical / structurely damaged ?

Bit like a building being mechanical / structurely damaged , the foundations being weakened in an earthquake and then trying to build more floors on top without indeapth investigatation of the damage and rehabilitation required.


Why couldn't I recieve an indeapth medicial investigation to establish the extent and severity of Injury and recieve appropiate REHABILITATION treatment for injury ?

;)

I notice that this deemed IRP is Jan 2008, however if the person whose IRP this is would like to contact me directly through [email protected] with a full copy of the IRP and any further updates about what has gone on since that time I will only be too happy to bring it to COG's attention.

how many have notice that the IRP on here has only got a secondary injury down and not the primary injury.

What I make out is

date of injury 20/03/88

date of incapacity 20/03/88

injury dianogses (1) secondary 3102 possoussion Syndrome - Non Applicable.

this is a IRP for a injury that is non applicable and if it is non applicable then why is ACC supplying entitlement, waisting time in the case management when the injury has not got cover

fairgo this is very interesting especially if the secondary injury is part of the primary injury.

May take some time for files to come, try and work with them to retrieve resolve and rectify ask for a time frameto work towards. It's important to be honest with yourself and try and find a way to get rehab that works for you so you are able to be free from ACC as much as possiable. 8-) GOOD LUCK BE POSITIVE, COOL CARM AND COLLECTIVE. ;)
