Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap rounds out our visit to Fabulous Las Vegas for the National Workers’ Compensation & Disability Conference! Day two was just as fast and furious, with plenty of great connections in the expo hall, some engaging session action, and finished off with some fine dining, Vegas-Style!
Featured in the news today is the California DWC’s announcement that it has received final approval from the OAL and will adopt its evidence-based drug formulary on Jan 1. Guidelines include measures to prevent the overuse of opioids, and features a drug list compiled by DWC with assistance from ReedGroup/ACOEM that takes into consideration medications frequently prescribed for occupational injuries and the evidence-based drug recommendations in ACOEM’s guidelines. The division will host two informational webinars on the formulary implementation on December 13 and 14.
