Until now, there has been no formal training system that adopts whole person recovery management. In this episode of Kintinu’d Conversations, Brad Dexter and Steve Kerschke welcome Bob Wilson and Mark Pew to the podcast for a rousing discussion about the world of workers’ compensation! Bob and Mark discuss their new endeavor, the importance of education and information exchange, and the value in aligning providers with insurance companies who see value in treating the “entire person.”
