Are you aware of family, urgent care, or internal medicine physicians, nurse practitioners, or physician assistants who are not trained in OEM but are interested in adding some OEM competencies to their “tool kits”? If so, let them know about this great opportunity to learn more about OEM! Are you seeing patients with occupational illnesses or injuries such as musculoskeletal injuries with impairment for joints and the spine or opioid-related issues in the workplace? Are you asked to develop returnto-work plans for your patients? This session will provide a brief introduction on the ways that primary care physicians and other practitioners can benefit from the many resources of OEM. This session is intended for those who are new to the field of occupational medicine. This session may be of particular interest to residents and recent graduates.
