10.3.2 'therapeutic treatment obtained at the direction of' - paragraph (d)


'At the direction of' means 'advised, prescribed or ordered ... these terms having relatively well understood and not greatly dissimilar connotations in the context of doctor-patient communications as to the undertaking of treatment for an injury'. Direction must be more than mere 'guidance' but does not require 'monitoring, control or management by a doctor': Comcare v Watson (1997).
