When to challenge an occupational health report

21 January 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Who is it for?

This event is for an HR professional who uses occupational health now or can see that they will do in the future; independent HR Consultants running their own business and standalone HR professionals.

About the presenter/business:

Anna hase enjoyed over 19+ years providing occupational health services to all range of organisation size; micro, medium, multi-national and sector – education, manufacturing, engineering, charity, food, retail, agriculture, healthcare. Her last employed role as a clinical lead required me auditing occupational health reports and listening to client and employee concerns about report content.

Anna set up her business (WHIB Ltd), November 2019 to provide occupational health management referral service to small business and be a partner with HR professionals to support the resolution of difficult employee health issues.

Prior to this she has worked in some of the best and worst (not for long!) large occupational health providers. Anna’s report writing skills, she believes have been honed by the years of experience, willingness to be challenged and changed. Anna is particularly proud to say that about 18 months ago with the Society of Occupational Medicine she invited Legal Experience Training to deliver barrister lead training to occupational health professionals (Doctors and Nurses) on clinical note writing and record keeping. Clinical notes and records were critically scrutinised by the barrister during the session.

Anna is passionate about occupational health really being the partner to human resources; “I think I “get it” from your perspective – but tell me I am wrong in this session if not!”

“You will appreciate from the above paragraph that I am willing to be challenged just as I will challenge with humour and kindness. This is how to learn and also how we really can form a great partnership.”

What you will get from the session:

  • What do clinicians mean by evidence?
  • Why a clinician may sit on the fence and what to do about it
  • What absolutely should be in the occupational health report
  • Consent – informed – what does this mean? Different levels of consent.
  • Reviews – are they necessary?
  • Obtaining reports from treating clinicians – GPs, specialists – when & understand the difference
  • Equality Act definition of disability – what is the occupational health role and what is not
  • Adjustments – what should OH do and what they should not
  • Bring to the session your experiences to discuss
  • Anna will do a pdf of the essential components of an occupational health report and you will get a copy of one of her sanitised reports (this can be before the session so it can be scrutinised in the session)
