Did you know that as of October 15th 2013, to perform permanent impairment (PI) assessments in QLD,

a doctor now, not only has to be trained in the use of the AMA Guides 5th Edition, but also has to be trained in the

"Guidelines for Evaluation of Permanent Impairment"(GEPI) 2nd edition, QLD.

Dr Ballenden is GEPI trained. GEPI only applies to workers compensation statutory claims for PI. 

Motor vehicle accidents will still be assessed as per AMA Guides Ed 5, without GEPI.
