The recent pandemic and natural/manmade disasters have changed our nation, and our world. Early in 2020 we were faced with closing a nation. This change led to unemployment, financial losses, and changes on how work is being completed. Families and industry had to quickly shift to homeschooling their children, while trying to work remotely. Employers had to change how business would be conducted in these challenging times and moving forward. This presentation will reflect on what we learned from these historic events and will discuss the outlook for occupational health and industry 2023 and beyond. Concepts and trends, such as Total Worker Health, telemedicine/telehealth, and use of Zoom and social media in a business world will be discussed, as well as “best practice” ideas for the occupational health community post-pandemic.
1. Review lessens learned and best practices in pandemic and disaster preparedness.
2. Discuss types and trends of telemedicine/telehealth best practices.
3. Review Total worker Health tools, resources and best practices.
4. List resources for virtual meetings and social media in the new business world.
