Description

Description
The primary care practitioner (PCPs) may frequently encounter work-related health problems in the patient population. In addition, primary care providers may be called upon by small companies and businesses to serve as medical advisors. However, most PCPs have little or no formal background and/or training in this area. The course will review the primary care provider's role in administrative and legal issues related to occupational health. This is Part I of a two part series.

Who Should Attend
This program is designed for primary care physicians. Many other professionals will benefit from attending as well. These include physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other primary care providers who have limited formal preparation in occupational and environmental medicine (OEM) but who handle occupational health problems on a full or part time basis. Physician Residents are welcome to attend.

Conference Objectives

This workshop is designed to enhance the knowledge of primary care providers in their treatment of patients with work-related injuries and illnesses. You will experience 12 contact hours of expert instruction while interacting with your peers. At the end of this activity, you will have specific knowledge in managing occupational illnesses and injuries. You will better understand workers compensation requirements and how occupational health disparities are reflected in your patient population.
