An Eye for an Eye: The Legal Consequences of Vision Loss Joseph Citron, MD Esq.
A uniquely qualified presenter, Dr. Joe Citron is both an ophthalmologist and an attorney. He explains the mystery of how we see and what goes wrong when the visual system is injured. Loss of vision can have profound effects on a plaintiff, affecting vocational, social, and psychological issues. Dr. Citron pulls back the covers to share his knowledge. Eyes, vision and injuries have long been the province of a few specially trained medical people. No more! He’ll use common English and a minimum of medical terms to explain how people see. He’ll help you understand the connections between the eyes and the brain as well as the methods used for testing these areas. What’s the eye case worth? Dr. Citron will help you determine the value of eye injuries.

Nutrition: Was Malnutrition the Culprit?Janet McKee, MS RD CSG LD/N DAPWCA
Forty to eighty five percent of patients and nursing home residents experience protein-calorie malnutrition, which promotes involuntary weight loss, pressure wound development, poor wound healing and other negative patient or resident outcomes. Because malnutrition and many of its unintended consequences can often be prevented, appropriate recognition and management of malnutrition or the risk for malnutrition is of primary importance in assessing the status of patients and residents. An evaluation of the nutritional assessment, care planning, interventions and monitoring should be completed for each case involving malnutrition, weight loss or pressure wounds. A nutritional expert exposes the practices that lead to malnutrition. This interactive webinar provides the knowledge to determine when nutrition is a key issue in case evaluations and screening a claim for merit.
