Employers are seeing the value of offering onsite services for occupational health, prevention services, post-injury treatment, and disability management. OnSite Services: Practical Strategies for Implementation is an 8 hour in person course focusing on the knowledge and skills necessary to deliver prevention, wellness and treatment services in the workplace. Several group activities and discussions help participants integrate the information from the training including data review for prioritizing onsite opportunities, proposal development/planning, service implementation, communication and regulatory considerations.
Primary audience is Physical and Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, and Occupational Therapist Assistants, although content may be relevant to other licensed healthcare professionals who may also work in onsite settings where they work directly with employers/employees (such as Occupational Health Nurses, Physician Assistants, Registered/Certified KINs-Canada, Athletic Trainers, Case Managers) who can receive a certificate of completion if they complete the program requirements. Licensure or registration information is a prerequisite if seeking a certificate of completion. Other attendees such as non-licensed health and wellness providers, sales and marketing or administrative professionals may also attend (if they accompany licensed health providers) and receive a letter of attendance.
