The Workshop which was held at The Albany Club (91 King St. E., Toronto, ON) on October 24, 2013 is available for purchase.

The Canadian Academy of Psychologists in Disability Assessment (CAPDA) is pleased to announce a half-day workshop on the morning of April 21, 2017 comprised of presentations from three legal experts on issues pertaining to expert evidence and report writing.

Much of the workshop will focus on the “hot off the press” Kushnir v. Macari decision, released February 3, 2017. This decision relates to ghostwriting and the use of assistants, and will directly impact the way experts must conduct Medical-legal/Insurer’s examinations, file reviews, and write reports. Issues pertaining to expert bias will also be discussed.

The three presentations will be followed by a panel discussion.

The topics under discussion will directly impact medical-legal examinations regardless of discipline, and as such, the workshop is open to all expert assessors and not just psychologists.

Speaker(s)

SPEAKERS:

Mr. Warren Whiteknight, the Plaintiff lawyer on the Kushnir v. Macari case will be speaking about the use of assistants in the assessment process and what we can and cannot do as experts writing medical-legal reports.

Ms. Philippa Samworth, a senior defense lawyer will draw upon her years of experience cross examining experts and will provide her perspective regarding the impact of the decision on expert’s practice in conducting medical-legal examinations and report writing.

The Honourable Madam Justice Helen MacLeod-Beliveau, Superior Court of Justice, Kingston, Ontario has written several recent judicial decisions that have a significant impact upon medical-legal assessment practices, including the Kushnir v. Macari decision (on the use of “ghost writers”) and the Daggit v. Campbell decision (on expert bias/the “hired gun” assessor). She will be discussing Do’s and Don’ts when offering expert evidence/reports given recent case law. She will review recent case law and will place it into a practical context for the expert opinion report writer with a focus on Do’s and Don’ts.
