HRPA 2019 Annual Conference: Speaker

Practical Strategies for Managing Chronic and Traumatic Stress Claims in the Workplace

Presented by: Alexandra Stinson, M.Sc., R.Kin., CCPE

10:00-11:00 am, February 1st, 2019

Room 706 Session #330

2018 brought about a more inclusive compensable claim strategy from WSIB that now entitles all workers, not just First Responders, to benefits for traumatic or chronic mental stress arising from the workerís employment. This dramatic shift from physical limitations to mental health capacity has been challenging for many organizations that are lost on how to manage mental health claims. Explore strategies, tools and processes you can use to ensure that chronic and traumatic stress claims can be addressed effectively and efficiently in your current Early and Safe Return to Work program.
