Module Information

This module covers the methodology in the Guides for evaluating permanent impairment of the skin and its appendages.

The module covers:

  • The assessment of skin as organ system which includes assessments of scars (including surgical scar), burns, skin grafts, and stumps, but also includes dermatological conditions such as dermatitis.
  • The approach to evaluation of the impact of a skin condition on activities of daily living.
  • The approach to then considering what symptoms and signs or skin disorder may be present, whether these will change with treatment, and the extent of any treatment that may be required.
  • The use of part of Chapter 9 to assess facial impairment.
  • The approach to be taken where other parts of the Guides may also be used to assess the effect of certain skin conditions.
