This month's "CONVERSATION"
Each month we focus on a different topic at our meetings. Below is a summary of our most recent topic along with the Continued Conversation hosted by Matt Schwartz as he interviews our guest speakers.
Right to Work and Stay at Work
This month's presentation covered the features of a program designed to address RTW and Stay at Work using a participatory ergonomics model and collaboration between vendors and the employer. Speakers Allison Ledford of Norton Healthcare and Cara Gaines of Briotix discussed the ROI this collaboration has produced and how others may leverage this model in any setting from healthcare to manufacturing.
Also shared at the meeting was the announcement that the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet and Operation UNITE are launching a new substance abuse call center that will connect people across the state with drug treatment. Beginning Dec. 1, Kentuckians struggling with a substance use disorder, either themselves or within their families, can call 1-833-8KY-HELP (1-833-859-4357) toll-free to speak with a specialist about treatment options and available resources. The specialist will conduct a brief screening assessment in order to connect callers with the most relevant treatment services as quickly as possible.
