The annual Sir Owen Woodhouse Memorial lecture is being held at Auckland University on September 26th at 6pm. This year's lecture will be given by Sir Geoffrey Palmer.
This event requires registration; you can register here.
This event takes place to remember the work undertaken by Sir Owen Woodhouse and his contribution to accident compensation in New Zealand.
ACC Futures recognises the influence that Sir Owen Woodhouse has had on the ACC scheme. His December 1967 report of the Royal Commission of inquiry into Compensation for Personal Injury in New Zealand (also known as the 'Woodhouse Report') sets out the principles that should govern compensation of personal injury in New Zealand.
The principles he identified, including community responsibility; comprehensive entitlement; complete rehabilitation; real compensation; and administrative efficiency still hold true today and provide the basis for ACC Futures policy reform.
ACC Futures would recommend that its members attend the lecture and acknowledge Sir Woodhouse's significant influence on accident compensation and social policy in New Zealand.
