The injury notification form must be signed personally and therefore cannot be sent electronically to the Centre. Adults must sign the form themselves, or authorise someone else to attend to the matter on their behalf by completing the authorisation section of the form.

When the patient is a minor or otherwise legally incompetent, the injury notification form must be signed by a trustee. The parents of minors can usually act as trustees. In cases where the patient is deceased, the injury notification can be filed by a party to the estate.
