The Link Between Behavioral Health and Physical Health Is Stronger Than You Think
• Tron Emptage, Chief Clinical Officer, Optum

Mental health can have a significant impact on physical health. Expert panelists will explain what you need to do, watch for, and ask when navigating workers’ comp claims that include components such as mood disorders, trauma and stress-related disorders and substance use disorders. These issues impact a growing body of claims, especially now that several states are considering adding post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a covered condition. Panelists will discuss types of treatments and explain how these treatments may affect work performance. Panelists will also review the characteristics of caregivers and explain how these stakeholders play an integral role in treatment progress and success.

As the workforce ages and the so-called “Silver Tsunami” approaches, the burning question is how we address the departure of industry leaders who have massive amounts of experience and deep/broad institutional knowledge. A new generation is already assuming the mantle of leadership with another generation behind them getting ready for their turn. How do we as an industry as well as individual companies strategically manage this transition of leadership and institutional knowledge while leveraging a unique opportunity to shift the status quo? This engaging, rapid-fire panel will present proactive and tangible strategies for creating seamless transitions, infuse meaningful purpose into the industry, and maximizing mentorship opportunities.
