Module Information

This module covers the assessment of permanent impairments from the principle dysfunctions of the ear, nose, throat and related structures.

The module covers:

  • The fact that legislation requires that the Australian NAL methodology is used to assess hearing loss rather than the method in Chapter 9 of the Guides.
  • The process to be followed to assess impairment of hearing loss is the NAL methodology as it is variously adopted in the three compensation jurisdictions.
  • The specific approaches taken to the assessment of noise induced hearing loss.
  • The approach to be taken to assess ENT disorders including equilibrium, facial structure, disorders of the air passage defects.
  • The other parts of the Guides beyond Chapter 9 that an examiner accredited for this module may use to complete assessment of impairments of Cranial Nerves I, VI and VIII.
