Case managers have long known the importance of getting to know an injured employee and their family on a more intimate level. They understand that observing the “whole person,” helps to identify factors such as economic stability, home life, and access to healthy food. And they are keenly aware that these aspects of a person’s life, also known as social determinants of health, have a significant influence on recovery and return to work. During this session, we’ll focus on defining social determinants of health, the conditions in which an individual lives, works, learns and plays, and discuss how to align a care management approach to address these non-medical barriers.
