Statement of Principles

concerning

 

ANXIETY DISORDER

No. 103 of 2014

 

for the purposes of the

 

Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986

and

Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004

Title

1.         This Instrument may be cited as Statement of Principles concerning anxiety disorder No. 103 of 2014.

Determination

2.         The Repatriation Medical Authority under subsection 196B(3) and (8) of the Veterans' Entitlements Act 1986 (the VEA):

(a)        revokes Instrument No. 102 of 2007 concerning anxiety disorder; and

(b)        determines in its place this Statement of Principles.

Kind of injury, disease or death

3.         (a)        This Statement of Principles is about anxiety disorder and death from anxiety disorder.

(b)        For the purposes of this Statement of Principles, "anxiety disorder" means generalised anxiety disorder, anxiety disorder due to another medical condition, other specified anxiety disorder or unspecified anxiety disorder and substance/medication-induced anxiety disorder, where:

"generalised anxiety disorder" means a mental disorder that meets the following diagnostic criteria (derived from DSM-5):

A.                 Excessive anxiety and worry (apprehensive expectation), occurring more days than not for at least six months, about a number of events or activities (such as work or school performance);

B.                 The individual finds it difficult to control the worry;

C.                 The anxiety and worry are associated with three (or more) in an adult, or one or more in a child, of the following six symptoms (with at least some symptoms having been present for more days than not for the past six months):

(i)                 restlessness or feeling keyed up or on edge;

(ii)               being easily fatigued;

(iii)             difficulty concentrating or mind going blank;

(iv)             irritability;

(v)               muscle tension; or

(vi)             sleep disturbance (difficulty falling or staying asleep, or restless, unsatisfying sleep);

D.                 The anxiety, worry or physical symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational or other important areas of functioning;

E.                  The disturbance is not attributable to the physiological effects of a substance (for example, a drug of abuse, a medication) or another medical condition (for example, hyperthyroidism); and

F.                  The disturbance is not better explained by another mental disorder (for example, anxiety or worry about having panic attacks in panic disorder, negative evaluation in social anxiety disorder [social phobia], contamination or other obsessions in obsessive-compulsive disorder, separation from attachment figures in separation anxiety disorder, reminders of traumatic events in posttraumatic stress disorder, gaining weight in anorexia nervosa, physical complaints in somatic symptom disorder, perceived appearance flaws in body dysmorphic disorder, having a serious illness in illness anxiety disorder, or the content of delusional beliefs in schizophrenia or delusional disorder).

"anxiety disorder due to another medical condition" means a mental disorder that meets the following diagnostic criteria (derived from DSM-5):

A.                Panic attacks or anxiety is predominant in the clinical picture;

B.                There is evidence from the history, physical examination, or laboratory findings that the disturbance is the direct pathophysiological consequence of another medical condition;

C.                The disturbance is not better explained by another mental disorder;

D.                The disturbance does not occur exclusively during the course of a delirium; and

E.                 The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational or other important areas of functioning.

"other specified anxiety disorder" and "unspecified anxiety disorder" are mental disorders (derived from DSM-5) with prominent symptoms of anxiety that cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational or other important areas of functioning, however, these anxiety symptoms do not meet the full diagnostic criteria for any of the other anxiety disorders.

"substance/medication-induced anxiety disorder" means a mental disorder that meets the following diagnostic criteria (derived from DSM-5):

A.                Panic attacks or anxiety is predominant in the clinical picture;

B.                There is evidence from the history, physical examination or laboratory findings of both (i) and (ii):

(i)            the symptoms in Criterion A developed during or soon after substance intoxication or withdrawal or after exposure to a medication; and

(ii)          the substance/medication involved is capable of producing the symptoms in Criterion A;

C.                The disturbance is not better explained by an anxiety disorder that is not substance/medication-induced.  Such evidence of an independent anxiety disorder includes the following:

(i)            the symptoms precede the onset of the substance/medication use; or

(ii)          the symptoms persist for more than one month after the cessation of acute withdrawal or severe intoxication; or

(iii)        there is other evidence suggesting the existence of an independent non-substance/medication-induced anxiety disorder (for example, a history of recurrent non-substance/medication-related episodes);

D.                The disturbance does not occur exclusively during the course of a delirium; and

E.                 The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational or other important areas of functioning.

This definition of anxiety disorder excludes the other anxiety disorders: agoraphobia, panic disorder, selective mutism, separation anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and specific phobia.

Basis for determining the factors

4.         On the sound medical-scientific evidence available, the Repatriation Medical Authority is of the view that it is more probable than not that anxiety disorder and death from anxiety disorder can be related to relevant service rendered by veterans or members of the Forces under the VEA, or members under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 2004 (the MRCA).

Factors that must be related to service

5.         Subject to clause 7, at least one of the factors set out in clause 6 must be related to the relevant service rendered by the person.

Factors

6.         The factor that must exist before it can be said that, on the balance of probabilities, anxiety disorder or death from anxiety disorder is connected with the circumstances of a person’s relevant service is:

(a)                for generalised anxiety disorder, other specified anxiety disorder or unspecified anxiety disorder only:

(i)                experiencing a category 1A stressor within the two years before the clinical onset of anxiety disorder; or

(ii)              experiencing a category 1B stressor within the two years before the clinical onset of anxiety disorder; or
