Since 2010, the Workers’ Compensation Board has developed training programs designed to meet the needs of the different stakeholders who participate in the WC system and use the Medical Treatment Guidelines (MTGs). The training has courses for the treatment of injuries and illnesses for the updated Mid and Low Back, Neck, Shoulder, Knee and Non-Acute Pain MTGs, as well as training for the new Ankle and Foot Disorders, Elbow Injuries, Hand, Wrist and Forearm Injuries (including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome), Hip and Groin Disorders, Occupational Interstitial Lung Disease, Occupational/Work-Related Asthma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Acute Stress Disorder and Work-Related Depression and Depressive Disorders.
To maintain your knowledge base, we recommend that you take all the courses.
