Occupational Concussion: Implications for Return to Work and Ability to Work

Apr 26, 2017 3:00pm ‐ Apr 26, 2017 4:30pm

While initial signs and symptoms associated with a concussion/ traumatic brain injury (TBI) are often obvious and significant, prolonged recovery and impairment may indicate more subtle disruption in neurological subsystems. Early identification can facilitate appropriate interventions to speed recovery and to reduce impairment and disability. In this session, we will review the pathophysiology of concussion, discuss the physical exam to target these various subsystems and illustrate the use of some of the assessment tools and interventions used to assist in the resolution of concussion related disorders.

  • Define concussion and post-concussion syndrome and the short and long term implications of each.
  • Describe the evaluation process of the initial and ongoing physical, cognitive and psychological signs and symptoms of concussion.
  • Identify appropriate treatment options for the various levels and stages of concussion.

This session will guide you through steps to take to mitigate threats of violence.

  • Describe what is a threat of violence.
  • List proven methods to mitigate threats of violence.
  • Outline actions to take if confronted with an active shooter scenario.

Frontline Prevention of System Induced Disability

Apr 27, 2017 8:00am ‐ Apr 27, 2017 9:30am

System induced disability (SID) is a condition that occupational health nurses are in the best position to prevent. According to the CDC, disability is likely to increase three times faster than the risk of having heart disease, having a stroke or developing cancer. Disability results in a decrease in standard of living and costs Americans $400 billion dollars each year. One in four women have a disability, while three in ten non-hispanic blacks have a disability. The unique positions of OHNs allows us to immediately impact the future of the injured worker. This session will give you the tools to recognize when SID may be occurring, avoid promoting SID, treat an active case of SID and – best of all – prevent SID.

  • Identify how OHNs can contribute to the causation or prevention of SID.
  • Identify five early warning signals that SID is developing.
  • Identify five ways to pro-actively intercept and prevent the development of SID in employees.

Using case studies, this presentation will advance the concept of productive aging and present evidence-based methods for facilitating an age-friendly workplace. You will have access to tools and strategies that encourage a culture of health that facilitates intergenerational collaboration and support.
