Jacksonville, FL US
September 15, 2017

Course Directors: Terry W. Kuhlwein, M.D. & James M. Lance, D.O., M.P.H.

The Challenges in Worker's Compensation Treatment Course will provide physicians and other healthcare professionals with an approach to the evaluation and treatment of injuries and illnesses commonly encountered within the workplace. The course will focus on injuries that are often difficult to diagnose, are refractory to standard treatment, or warrant early referral to a specialist in order to optimize outcomes. Case based scenarios will be utilized to guide participants through formulating differential diagnoses, ordering appropriate diagnostic studies, developing an effective treatment plan and deciding when to refer  to a higher level of care. Participants will benefit from the insightful perspective of multiple orthopedic, musculoskeletal and pain specialists, with an opportunity to ask questions.
