Exploring the World of Opioid Alternatives
January 20 | 1 p.m. EDT - CLICK TO REGISTER
Following a workplace injury, an injured worker may be prescribed medication to manage chronic pain. Opioids are often the default prescription, but with the risk of misuse and addiction, are they the best solution? During this webinar, we will identify opioids that are commonly prescribed and covered by insurance and compare them to alternative medications with lower risk of side effects and dependency. We will also explore alternative pain management solutions such as cognitive behavioral therapy, massage, acupuncture, medicinal marijuana and supplements to determine how these treatments can support an injured worker through their recovery.
Presented by: Hayley Tidwell, BSN, RN, CCM, Director, Clinical Education
Collaboration: The Key to Successful PT Claim Outcomes
January 26 | 1 p.m. EDT - CLICK TO REGISTER
**Please note this is an informational webinar only and not eligible for CE credit.
Facilitating treatment doesn’t happen in a vacuum. There are many steps throughout the claim process: identify injury, submit referral, select provider, coordinate care, and process treatment records and paperwork. For this intricate process to run efficiently there must be trusted partnerships, open communication, and above all, collaboration amongst all parties. When true alignment occurs, the injured worker wins.
Join us for a unique roundtable discussion about the PT claim process from various stakeholder viewpoints – provider, physician, payer and care coordinator. Get an inside look at how these parties collaborate to generate successful patient outcomes.

Impact of Adding a Secondary Dental Claim

Dental care may not be top-of-mind following a workplace injury, but if not proactively managed, a secondary dental claim could arise and result in extensive treatment following the initial claim. This webinar will identify how a secondary dental claim can occur and address the medical necessity of dental treatment. The course will also discuss the costs associated with secondary dental claims and break down potential medical expenses.

Lifetime Cost for Prosthetics
April 14 | 11 a.m. EDT - CLICK TO REGISTER
Life is forever changed for the millions of Americans who have lost a limb due to disease or injury. While incredibly traumatic, amputees can regain some, if not all, function through the use of a well-crafted prosthetic – returning independence and a positive mental outlook.
