Why Should I Register?
It’s proven that when patients are provided meaningful modified or transitional work by their employers, work heals.  Returning to work improves the patient’s morale, speeds recovery, and improves outcomes.

Webinar Content
Join Montana State Fund and Robert Wilson, President & CEO of, for an informative and at times humorous look at returning employees back to work as he presents “Return to Function on the Path to Workers’ Recovery”.

Wilson will explain different ways to view and approach traditional roles in both Workers’ Compensation and Return to Work, with the goal of improving process and outcome for all.  He will help participants look at the system from “the outside”, and review the perceptions of workers’ compensation, and how they can negatively affect the outcomes of injury claims. He will also discuss how understanding those perceptions can help us change the focus and language surrounding the process, which can significantly improve results for all involved.
