The APTA Orthopeadic Section’s Occupational Health Special Interest Group (OHSIG) has its own page within the orthopedic section’s website. For those of you who may not be familiar with the OHSIG, it seeks to provide research updates, professional resources, and a forum for discussion and interaction amongst therapist working on the occupational health setting.
• Occupational health research summaries and POP question mailers
• Receive quarterly email newsletters with up to date information on occupational health issues and OHSIG activities
• Have exposure to therapists experienced in pro-active occupational health services to expand your professional expertise
• Enhance your clinical practice beyond the traditional clinic environment through increased awareness of valuable services such as functional capacity evaluations, job
analysis, ergonomics, post offer screens, job coaching and education, prevention and fitness programs, and much more
• Discover opportunities that may provide a more autonomous practice environment
• Interact with clinicians who are forward thinking and active in numerous areas of practice, including academia, private practice, hospital, corporate settings, etc.
For those of you who may not have joined the OHSIG or who may not have visited the site we invite you to join and participate in its discussion forum and view its various resources at:
Is this forum only open to PT/OTs or would you accept a physician/ergonomist as a participant too. My two fields of specialty have been rehabilitation medicine and occupational medicine respectively and I have had a 30 year love affair with the problems and challenges of onsite health and safety pros such as your selves. I will visit the site as you suggest but hope to hear if participation from a non-ortho is welcomed there. It would be my hope that anyone working to promote health and prevent disability might find a home there.
