Workers' Compensation: A Primer for Hand Surgeons


Published by: American Society for Surgery of the Hand

Edited by Jay F. Pomerance, MD and Matthew D. Putnam, MD

Available as an eBook only, Workers’ Compensation: A Primer for Hand Surgeons seeks to address the lack of formalized training in workers’ compensation in the current ACGME standardized curriculum for hand surgeons.  Drawing from expert knowledge in the fields of medicine, business and law, this eBook will prepare the hand surgeon to manage patients in the workers’ compensation system, while facilitating a productive and trusting physician-patient relationship.

Workers’ Compensation offers indispensable guidance for any hand practice.  It will provide surgeons with the information to answer common workers’ compensation patient questions such as:
  • Did work cause/contribute to my problem?
  • Can I go back to work?
  • When, and what, if any, restrictions would be appropriate?
  • What about pain?
