Module Information

The module teaches the methodology in the Guides for evaluating permanent impairments resulting dysfunction of the brain, brain stem, cranial nerves, spinal cord, nerve roots, and peripheral nerves.

While much of the methodology is found in Chapter 4 of the Guides, the module also covers the approach required to use other parts of the Guides to assess certain impairments, particularly peripheral nerve injury.

The module covers:

  • The methodology for assessing impairment of the forebrain including evaluation of mental status, brain injury causing behavioural change, epilepsy, and major motor and sensory disorders.
  • The methodology for assessing impairment from spinal cord injury and the approach to be taken when an alternative spine assessment has been conducted using Chapter 3 of the Guides.
  • The methodology for assessing cranial nerve dysfunction, including the approach to be taken when a more specific method of assessment is available from another Chapter of the Guides (such as when cranial nerves affecting vision are involved).
  • The methodology for assessing peripheral nerves which includes the approach to estimate (or grade) the extent of damage of a peripheral nerve, including the branchial plexus.
