WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON WITH YOUR PATIENTS WITH BACK PAIN? MOVING THEM FORWARD
Christopher J. Standaert, MD
Clinical Professor
Rehabilitation Medicine, Neurological Surgery, and Orthopedics and Sports Medicine
University of Washington

Join us on November 16, 2016 as Dr. Standaert, clinical provider at the University of Washington Sports and Spine Clinic, discusses the diagnosis, treatment, multivariate issues, and long term care for back pain and injuries. Back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease 2010, and is one of the most common reasons for days away from work. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says back injuries make up about 41% of ergonomic injury cases, and workers require a median seven days to recuperate.

This is a fantastic opportunity to network with health care and safety professionals from across the Pacific Northwest, and advance your clinical skills and knowledge.

CME, CNE, and IACET are available for this activity. Please visit osha.washington.edu for detailed accreditation and disclosure information.
