Description of Topics:

Preventing Delayed Recovery by Addressing Psychosocial Barriers

Similar workplace injuries can lead injured workers down drastically different recovery paths. Learn to recognize common risk factor for delayed recovery and how to identify workers that may benefit from focused interventions to prevent prolonged disability.

Diagnosis and Management of Traumatic Brain Injury in the Injured Worker

This presentation will focus on the mechanisms and classification of head trauma. Discussion will involve the topic of "post concussive syndrome" as well as the status of research on "cumulative traumatic encephalopathy". The role of neuropsychology in diagnosis and treatment guidance will be presented.

Ethical Decision Making

Acting ethically means so much more than not stealing the pens. We make decisions each day that reflect on our moral and ethical character. The problem is we rarely take time to reflect on these decisions. This session will help attendees increase understanding of common thinking traps, identify awareness of ethical thinking styles and articulate ethical awareness.
