Thursday November 3rd - Care and Carrier

 

Take Inventory of your practice.  Is there anything you can do to prevent more injuries?  Is there any way you can bring your employees back to work more quickly?  How does the way we communicate with injured workers influence a smooth return to work or make return to work more complicated?

 

Friday November 4th - Sense and Sensation

 

Focus on the impact that our senses have on our capacity to be productive at work. Deficits can be overcome to a certain degree, but first, we need to recognize when deficits exist.

 

Saturday November 5th - The Mind/Brain/Body Connection

 

How the brain connects with the body to be more than a breathing organism.  Learn to better understand the connection and how to make interventions based on this knowledge.
