Episode Info:

The AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment is used in workers’ compensation to rate impairment, but the most recent edition is causing some to question its reliability. In this special edition of Workers Comp Matters, host Alan Pierce debates with Chris Brigham about the sixth edition of the AMA Guides Impairment and whether it is a valid measure of disability ratings in the workers’ compensation setting. They cover the primary objectives of both sides and highlight the difference between impairment and disability, including what factors are relevant in determining the outcome of a case.

Christopher R. Brigham, MD is a leading international expert on human potential, impairment, and disability assessment and management.
