The MSIA luncheon meeting in Kansas City is scheduled for Friday, June 16, 2017.   The featured speakers will be Gini Toyne, RN, MBA, CDMS, CCM, CLCP and Terri Shofner, RN, CCM both with Gini L. Toyne & Associates, Inc.

Ms. Toyne and Ms. Shofner will be speaking on "CONCUSSION:  Case Management Perspective / What ALL Parties To A Claim Need To Know".

Concussions/mTBI – Much can be learned about concussions as there is a lot written about concussions.  Much of what we learn in conferences and presentations have to do with the anatomy of the brain, functions of different parts of the brain, various modalities for treating concussions, etc.  What you don't hear a lot about is the magnitude and effect on the life of an injured worker, the tedious ongoing treatment and continuous monitoring of progress and the ups and downs of treatment expectations and effectiveness.  These are the daunting physical and mental effects of good vs. poor outcomes and how they affect everyone from the injured worker, to the employer, to the adjuster and the attorneys involved.

Gini and Terri will walk you through the frustrations they have seen related to the changes in the lives of those who are injured (temporary and permanent) and the continuous struggle by the providers to identify the best treatment plan to return them as closely as possible to their previous levels.
