The PHT Claims Coordinator Workshop is an excellent opportunity for the Trust members to keep up with the current and emerging developments in workers’ compensation. This year, participants will learn about current legal issues impacting worker’s compensation in South Carolina. We have information to share on informal conferences best practices from the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission.
We have built time in the agenda for an open discussion on the nurse case manager’s evolving role in workers’ comp as it relates to working with the treating physician and encouraging light duty. Participants will hear from someone who has actually included return to work in their facility’s disability management program. You will also have an opportunity to learn from a member on best practices for your slip, trip, and fall program and how those efforts contributed to their success in a recent OSHA VPP audit. Finally, we will share awards to recognize those organizations who have excelled in safety over the past year.
