C-CAT INTRODUCTION
Share |



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 uniquelystructured 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.
