The Texas Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) has created new training materials to help treating doctors understand the role of a causation analysis in resolving a dispute and to educate them on what information is most helpful in these analyses.
The new materials for treating doctors include:
- A seven-minute educational video,
- A sample treating doctor report,
- A summary of best practices for preparing analyses, and
- Other resources for treating doctors.
Injured employees may need injury causation analyses from their treating doctors when there is a dispute. A treating doctor may be asked to provide a report that explains how and why the claimed accident or injury was a substantial factor in causing the work-related injury or illness within a reasonable degree of medical probability.
For additional information, call (512) 804-4040.
