Details About Course:  Disability Prevention for Treating Clinicians: Talking About Ability to Work

This course gives treating clinicians of all specialties a short primer in disability prevention and management.  (For the purposes of this course, "disability" refers to medically-excused absence from work.)   It is intended to build clinician awareness, confidence, and skills in minimizing the destructive impact of injury and illness on daily life and work.

This course was developed in order to meet the need for doctors who are equipped with a basic understanding of their role in disability prevention and management.  Patients, employers, insurance carriers, case management firms, and claims administration companies frequently complain about physicians' lack of awareness of and willingness to play the communications role prescribed for them in disability cases.

Very few clinicians have had formal education or training in how to prevent and minimize the impact of illness or injury on patients' major life functions, especially their jobs.  Most say they feel inadequately prepared to give return-to-work advice and set appropriate work restrictions and limitations.
