“Psychologically Informed Practice in the Occupational Health Environment,” presented by Chris Main, PhD, and hosted by MedRisk, is scheduled to take place Friday, October 27, at 10 am EST.

“This is a rare opportunity to hear from one of the world’s foremost authorities on the biopsychosocial approach to managing pain in the workplace,” says Mary O’Donoghue, MedRisk’s chief clinical and product officer, in a media release from the King of Prussia, Pa-based company.

During the webinar, designed for workers’ compensation medical directors, nurses, claim managers, and physical therapists, Main will describe the use of a psychologically informed practice in physical rehabilitation and secondary prevention. He will also share study results and examine the psychosocial context of work disability, re-engagement in work, and patient-centric care.

Main, a member of MedRisk’s International Scientific Advisory Board, is Professor Emeritus of clinical psychology at Keele University in Staffordshire, Great Britain and a former co-chair of the Wellbeing in Work partnership. He also is an honorary member of the British Pain Society, North American Spine Society, and International Association for the Study of Pain.
