The CMSA-OK Annual Conference this year will be highlighting important topics and issues that many of you have asked be addressed at this years conference. It will be a 3-day event, celebrating Case Management with up to 21.25 CEU's available. We have brought back Oklahoma native BK Kizzar to offer the CCM prep course on the first day. The second day is the annual educational offering "Celebrating Case Management" - "Made in Oklahoma", all speakers have an Oklahoma connection starting with Former Lt. Gov. Jari Askins as our keynote speaker. Both tracks, medical and work comp are well stocked with loads of new information. The medical track includes community and medical case management presentations focusing on effective strategies along the continuum as well as information from OKDRS regarding eligibility and services. The work comp track has a physician from Work Loss Data Institute presenting on ODG's (the hot topic of the year), to follow that an ODG panel including the WLDI physician, a peer review physician, an adjuster and two of your colleagues (two local case managers) plus a presentation on chronic pain management addressing the issue of narcotic use in Oklahoma. The National Public Policy Chair is coming to OK for an evening presentation to discuss grass-root efforts on multistage licensure in the state of Oklahoma. Day 3 is a post conference Leadership Summit. While Day two is packed with information focusing on pertinent clinical updates, strategies and resources, Day 3 offers interaction with leaders sharing experiences that will enhance teamwork and professional development. In this year of the Olympics the luncheon will feature a presentation by Special Olympics of Oklahoma highlighting one of Oklahoma's Special Olympians, our own - Heather Hancock.
