Summer Webinar Schedule ReleasedPresented by: Hayley Tidwell, BSN, RN, CCM

An Age of Injury report is a valuable tool that can help an adjuster better understand a specific injury and provide clarity around causation. When requested, an independent radiologist will review all diagnostic images and corresponding reports to provide clinical insights as to how and when the injury occurred. During this webinar, we will take a deep dive into the Age of Injury report- when to request, what information is provided, and how to read the findings – to discover how it can be a resource during the claims management process.

Post-acute facilities can be an appropriate choice for an injured worker, providing safe and cost-effective care during their recovery journey. For the claims management team, there are many options to consider in order to meet the individual’s medical needs and discharge plans. Join us as we discuss the different types of post-acute facilities, services offered at each location, admission criteria, and associated costs. By understanding the function of each facility, it eliminates the guesswork, to more efficiently handle claims and move the injured worker through the continuum of care.

When people begin to feel sick, they often reach for medications to ease their symptoms. As a result, the overuse of antibiotics and other prescription medications has led to drug resistant bugs, also known as superbugs. During this webinar, we will identify common ways superbugs can impact the workplace, discuss best practices to avoid such infections, and examine the long-term and costly consequences superbugs can have on the body. This course will include a discussion about COVID-19 and how the virus can impact the workplace and workers’ compensation claims.

A claims manager will facilitate many workers’ compensation claims over their career, addressing a variety of injuries and supporting individuals through their unique recovery journeys. When faced with a catastrophic claim, there are many factors to consider. This webinar will discuss how the injured worker’s level of function can provide key insights into medication management issues and the need for equipment, supplies, and home health care services – all of which have potential to impact recovery progression.

Rethinking Pain: Treating the Person AND the Injury

September 29 at 1 p.m. EDT – CLICK TO REGISTER

Summer Webinar Schedule ReleasedPresented by: Michelle Despres, PT, CEAS II, REAS, CETS

When an individual is hurt on the job, it is important to not only identify the physical injury but also acknowledge any emotional or environmental barriers – such as financial stress, lack of social support, or depression – which overtime, could impede recovery and create new complications. This care philosophy is commonly referred to as a biopsychosocial approach, taking a holistic view of the patient and proactively addressing recovery roadblocks. During this webinar, we will examine biopsychosocial risk factors that can delay recovery, identify ways this approach can improve return-to-work outcomes, and discuss how injury prevention and wellness programs can impact claims frequency and outcomes.
