This presentation includes a review of “real life” case studies involving complicated workers compensation situations with discussion about client-centered approaches, utilization of job analysis and objective data to drive treatment, and emphasis on how OT’s can focus on function to achieve optimal outcomes, elicit effective communication with employers and advocate for the patient and their safety. *An evidence based review of how COVID-19 may impact workers attitudes and implications on how that could impact injury, has been added to conclude the presentation.
