The Work Rehabilitation Guidelines Subcommittee of the Physical Medicine Best Practices Stakeholder Group from the Washington Department of Labor & Industries has created the “Work Rehabilitation Guidelines” document to present to the Stakeholder Group and the public for questions and commentary before finalizing. This document outlines clearer structure and increased use of evidence-base for treatment within the Work Hardening and Work Conditioning programs.
