Mayo Clinic and Essentia Health have gathered a world-class lineup of experts to continue the collaboration of employers and medicine to take care of our injured and ill workforce. Together, we can prevent needless work disability by helping people stay employed. Objectives of this course include explaining the impact the physician has on preventing needless work disability; establishing how improved communication among the health care provider, employer and employee contributes to optimal handling of injured or ill employees; assessing the negative impact that poor handling of the return-to-work process has on patients and the economy at large; and demonstrating insight and ideas to help prevent needless work disability in the future; explaining the physician’s role in defining appropriate disability-management criteria for injured or ill employees by creating a common language and understanding among business owners, human resource personnel, managers and supervisors, and medical professionals. We can interact, share ideas and move forward in the process of change that will lead to a reduction in needless disability in our workforce.
Advancements in neurorehabilitation are accelerating at an unprecedented rate. Neurology, neurosurgery, and physical medicine and rehabilitation professionals need an opportunity to gather and learn about the latest developments, share ideas and concepts, and create sustainable collaborations. To meet this need, the Neurorehabilitation Summit covers a wide range of topics related to common diagnoses, including brain disorders, spinal cord injury and disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases. The summit addresses research initiatives, advances in medicine, innovative technology and clinical applications to strengthen the continuum of care for this population.
The 2012 Brain Injury Conference will feature a variety of dynamic speakers who will discuss topics including sports-related concussions, care of the traumatic brain injury patient in the acute setting, yoga as a component of brain injury treatment, and a personal story of survival and success after brain injury. This conference is designed to provide meaningful information that you can translate into your clinical practice and day-to-day life to better assist individuals living with the effects of acquired brain injury.
Concussion is a major public health priority that transcends age, gender and sport. The under-reporting and recognition of concussion; and the potential for short-term catastrophic consequences and disabling long-term neurological impairment from repeated concussions has prompted the passage of legislation in many states that requires the immediate removal from play of an athlete suspected of having a concussion; mandatory concussion education of all those who intersect with an athlete; and return-to-play clearance by a qualified health care provider. This state-of-the-art symposium highlights the epidemiology of concussion in sport; the pathophysiology of concussion; sideline and outpatient clinical evaluation; standard and novel diagnostic strategies; and implementation of return-to-activity guidelines. The format includes platform lectures, small group workshops, panel discussions, and live two-way remote audio/video concussion evaluations using robotic teleconcussion technology. The faculty is comprised of renowned scientific and clinical experts in the field of concussion from Mayo Clinic and leading US academic medical centers. The intended audience includes athletic trainers, athletic directors, allied health professionals and physicians involved, or with an interest, in the evaluation and management of individuals with concussion. If you cannot attend this symposium onsite it is offered live via a webcast. Separate registration is to be completed.
The course includes topics such as medical management of behavioral health issues in the workplace; review of ACOEHM/AMA/APA disability guidelines for promoting stay at work and return-to-work guidelines; identifying obstacles and opportunities-stakeholder roles and expectations; evidence-based decision making in return to work; non-compliant patients; chronic pain models; musculoskeletal injury management and more.
The format provides a forum that addresses the role of multiple stakeholders, and primarily health care providers in the management of employee illness and injury.
