3.3.6 'The likelihood of improvement' - para (b)


When considering whether an impairment is likely to continue indefinitely the delegate should give consideration to whether the impairment is likely to cease.  The greater the likelihood of substantial improvement then the less likely the impairment can be regarded as permanent.  The reverse is also true; the less probable the likelihood of improvement, the more appropriate will be a finding that the impairment is permanent.
