Fitness and Return to Duty: Injury and Medical Rehabilitation
This workshop will look at medical rehabilitation strategies fire departments in the United States use to maximize return-to-work readiness and facilitate a smooth transition from injury to full duty. Departments of varying size benefit from in-house rehabilitation specialists, such as physical therapists and athletic trainers. In this workshop, you’ll learn about successful programs that facilitate employee trust, enhance the health and fitness of all employees, impact overall injury resilience and are cost-effective. This workshop also provides information on how to reach out to community rehabilitation providers for potential in-house services.
