Our distinguished panelists will share their views on the philosophy and reality of medical practice as it relates to workers’ compensation. One focus will be on the role of IME’s and the difference between section 312 and section 207 exams. There will be a detailed discussion of gradual injuries. And, you’ll hear their take on what drives doctors crazy when dealing with the comp system and their suggestions for how the system can be improved for more efficacious treatment of injured workers and more efficiencies for the system.
