Topic Overview: You have implemented safe needles, personal protective equipment, patient lifts and other injury prevention controls, but staff are still getting hurt, recovery from those injuries is slow and patient safety is not where it should be. What’s left to do? Learn how fatigue, stress, what we eat and drink, and our level of fitness contribute to our ability to do a job safely for ourselves and our patients, as well as the impact on the time it takes to heal and bring our injured workers back to the bedside. This session introduces attendees to ideas for small changes to our working environments that make it easier for an employee to make a healthy choice. Specific examples demonstrate how wellness and injury prevention can be applied together to improve team well-being. 


  1. Define Total Worker Health.
  2. Explain how wellness and health promotion may influence injury prevention and workers' compensation performance.
  3. Review how safety and health protection may influence health and health plan performance.
