Introduction

This ebook integrates all aspects of medical care relevant to worker compensation. It explains benefits of the application of evidence-based approaches to worker compensation care. Improved outcomes of such approaches include less risky treatments, faster healing, and good return to work experience. It also points towards designing a better health care system with a focus on the economy, healthcare policy and change, and growing innovation in medical practice.

The ebook should serve as a significantly important reference tool for several working professionals in healthcare systems as well as for students and trainees.
