The mission of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Center for Workers’ Compensation Studies (CWCS) is to maximize the use of workers’ compensation (WC) claims data and systems to improve workplace safety and health through partnerships. This poster presentation will describe recent and ongoing CWCS surveillance and research studies to achieve several key goals (see https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/workercomp/cwcs/publications.html).
In this presentation we will review our experience with implementing a program of virtual medical group visits for stress management through an on-site employer-based clinic. We will data demonstrating that this program is feasibility and acceptability to patients. While efficacy data is preliminary, it is suggestive that this kind of program can be effective in reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety in workers. Finally, we will discuss the unique aspects of on-site health care with respect to implementation of this program.
