Dr. Bailie spoke about the need to approach evaluation and treatment worker’s compensation knee/shoulder injuries just as he does in-season athletes. Prompt identification of the problem and directing the correct treatment course minimize time missed from work, improved patient outcomes and satisfaction and drastically decreases costs within the worker’s compensation system. First and foremost he emphasized the need to provide the best care to all patients and that includes prompt diagnosis by a specialists if “basic” evaluation and treatment has not improved the condition within a few days to a few weeks. Although advanced imaging is helpful, most problems can be diagnosed with an adequate history and physical by a sub-specialist. A thorough treatment algorithm is then generated and the patient presented with the options. Understanding the problem and the anticipated recovery time puts the patient at ease and helps them focus on rapid recovery. Many attendees came prepared seeking answers to questions which would help them perform the duties of their specific jobs within the industrial system. The meeting was well attended and several attendees requested Dr. Bailie return for another lecture soon. Dr. Bailie feels it is important to volunteer his time in order to provide up-to-date information on shoulder and knee problems to employers, nurse case managers, insurance adjusters and healthcare providers who treat industrial patients. Keeping everyone current helps employees obtain proper care and recover faster, thus returning to the work force much more quickly.
