Dear Sir, dear Madam,

In the name of the Organising Committee of the 5th International Congress of Medical Assessors of Slovenia (5MKMIS – 5ECMAS) I would like to invite you to the central event in the field of medical assessment in social security in our country, which is going to take place from 11 to 13 April 2019 in Laško.

We surely can say that this fifth expert meeting in the field of the assessment of temporary and permanent incapability for work as well as occupational and employment rehabilitation to be held has become a tradition. As always, our wish is to integrate all those who are taking part in these procedures: doctors, who in most cases start procedures on behalf of insured persons, as well as judges, who conclude them regarding the legal protection of the insured.

The conference is going to focus on neurological and oncological conditions as to

  • Sick leave
  • Disability
  • Disability assessment
  • Return to work
  • Occupational and employment rehabilitation

We are convinced that these issues will remain as current in the future as they are today, perhaps even more.

Renowned Slovenian and foreign experts are going to speak on the subject from scientific as well as practical points of view. We are quite convinced that the examples of good practice, which are also going to be an integral part of the schedule, will be extremely useful.

Apart from the scientific part of the congress, a lot of attention will be given to the pleasant stay of the participants: the venue, the thermal spa Thermana Laško, and the town of Laško with its surroundings offer great opportunities for accompanying activities during the congress.

Welcome to Laško in April 2019.

Chair of the Organising Committee

Dear Sir, dear Madam,

The Scientific Organisation Committee of the 5th International Congress of Medical Assessors of Slovenia (5MKMIS – 5ECMAS) strives to organize an event, which will be interesting from the scientific aspect by including topics which will maintain the continuity of the previous congresses.

At the 5MKMIS – 5ECMAS we wish to invite the best lecturers and present the novelties in the field of diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation of neurological and oncological conditions in light of assessments regarding temporary and permanent incapability for work, return to work and occupational rehabilitation possibilities.

We will mainly focus on promoting the return to work to disabled persons, the teaching of insurance medicine implementation in a modern way based on evidence, the goal to achieve the uniformity of assessment criteria of medical assessors in the field of assessment regarding temporary and permanent incapability for work.

The main themes of the congress will be neurology and oncology; other areas of medical assessment, however, will not be disregarded.

The addressed topics will reflect a wide range of this field, from the scientific development to examples of good practice.

As new diagnostic technologies, treatment and rehabilitation methods, as well as the possibilities for occupational and employment rehabilitation become available every day, we try to inform as many doctors and other experts in this and related areas about them, thus making our work even more successful.

Invited lecturers will present their contributions addressing the main themes at plenary sessions; parallel and poster sessions, on the other hand, also offer a great variety of theme choice, presentations and discussions.

The Pension and Disability Insurance Institute of Slovenia, The Health Insurance Institute of Slovenia, The Association of Occupational Therapists in the Republic of Slovenia, together with Thermana d.d. Laško invite you to the 5th International Congress of Medical Assessors, which will take place from 11 to 13 April 2019 in Laško.
