Since 2010, the Workers' Compensation Board has developed training programs designed to meet needs of the different constituencies who participate in the WC system and use the Medical Treatment Guidelines. The training has courses that provide an introduction to the General Guideline Principles, recommendations for the treatment of injuries and illnesses for the mid and low back, neck, shoulder, knee and for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and non-acute pain, and an overview of the MTG related forms and processes. The training is supplemented with case studies and/or quiz questions to demonstrate the appropriate application of the General Principles and MTG criteria.
In 2014, the Non-Acute Pain Guideline was added and the earlier Guideline courses were updated. To maintain your knowledge base, we recommend that you take all the courses.
