Colleagues,

 

Next week Tuesday, June 4th, we have a panel for Congressional staff focused on early intervention for newly ill and injured workers.  Jennifer Christian and Gary Franklin, experts familiar to everyone following the RETAIN effort, will both be sharing their perspectives.  While our target audience is Hill staff, others are welcome. 

 

Let me know if have any questions.

Supporting Employment for Newly Ill and Injured
Workers through Early Intervention

 

Tuesday, June 4, 2019, 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Check-in begins at 12:00 p.m.

 

Russell Senate Office Building, SR-188
Washington, DC 20510

 


 

Join us for an insightful discussion on early intervention to prevent work disability. Panelists will explore how early intervention programs help workers stay in the labor force after experiencing a new illness or injury, where critical gaps in access to these services exist, the consequences of needless job loss and withdrawal from the workforce for workers and society, and implications for federal policy. The discussion will draw on lessons learned from Washington State’s Centers for Occupational Health and Education intervention strategy, which reduced the rate at which injured workers left the labor force and became eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits by 30 percent. The panel will discuss the effectiveness of early intervention in improving employment and health outcomes for workers with a range of conditions, including mental health, musculoskeletal, and pain-related conditions, and how early intervention can help combat the opioid epidemic.
