On June 14, 2016, F&P President Bert Randall will participate in a panel discussion titled “Ethical Dilemmas: Escaping your professional silo” at the Maryland Joint Task Force for Injured Workers’ Annual Conference. The conference will take place at the Coppin State University’s Talon Center and is sponsored by Coppin State University’s College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and the International Association of Rehabilitation Professionals – Chesapeake.
The conference will aim to provide attendees with essential and practical information that is critical for Claims Adjusters, Nurse Case Managers, Vocational Counselors, Attorneys, Doctors, Therapists and other professionals working with injured workers.
The Joint Task Force on Rehabilitation for the Injured Worker was established in 1983 to provide an educational forum and promote better communication between professionals regarding rehabilitation services for the Maryland injured worker. The purpose and goal of the Task Force is to identify the skills and knowledge that are needed to assist and equip professionals in providing successful services for Maryland injured workers. Conferences, workshops and written material (The Good Practice Manual and other educational materials) provide the forum to present this information.
