The 10th Annual North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference, sponsored by the N.C. Industrial Commission in association with the International Workers’ Compensation Foundation, will take place Oct. 19-21 at The Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center, Durham (near Research Triangle Park).

The goal of this conference is to educate those who participate in the North Carolina workers’ comp system regarding current rules, procedures, policies and forms and to provide an opportunity for dialogue among these participants. The presenters are Commissioners, Deputy Commissioners, and Section Heads of the Industrial Commission; plaintiff’s and defense attorneys; physicians; chiropractors; physical therapists; insurance adjusters; medical and vocational rehabilitation specialists; and mediators.

Breakout sessions will be utilized to discuss certain topics in specific detail for a more specialized view, whereas other topics will be presented from a more general perspective.

Participants may be eligible for continuing education credits for conference attendance. Application has been made for credits in the following occupations: attorneys (CLE hours), carriers (CE hours), rehabilitation providers (CEU hours for CRC, CDMS, CCM), and contact hours for COHNs and CRRNs. Credits are approved for Certified Workers’ Compensation Professionals through Michigan State University.

Insurance adjusters should be aware that the requirement to attend the entire three-day program in order to receive any credit is that of the N.C. Department of Insurance.
