SAW/RTW Policy Collaborative's ePolicyWorks Online Dialogues
The SAW/RTW Policy Collaborative was established by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy to support the development of polices, programs and practices that encourage the continued employment of workers likely to leave the workforce due to injury, serious illness, or disability. As part of this initiative, the SAW/RTW Policy Collaborative is hosting a series of online dialogues to gather input and ideas from the public and other stakeholders including subject matter experts. Ideas and comments gathered from these online dialogues will be used to guide the work of the SAW/RTW Policy Working Groups (PWGs) to develop policy recommendations, as well as resources and materials to assist states and other key stakeholders in improving services to injured or disabled workers.
We invite you to join our current dialogue with comments and ideas about the target audiences and dissemination strategies that are the focus of our three PWGs - Replicating/Adapting Washington’s COHE Model, Musculoskeletal Injuries and Pain Management, and Transition Back to Work.
To join the conversation about how to disseminate the policy products of the SAW/RTW Policy Collaborative, please take a moment to Register or to Log In (if you have already registered), and share your ideas. You can also VOTE on any of the ideas, you can COMMENT on any of the ideas, sharing your experience or asking questions about that idea, or you can ADD AN IDEA, by clicking on the SUBMIT NEW IDEA button or clicking the Got It, Let's Get Started link at the bottom of the page.
We look forward to your contributions and thank you in advance for joining us in this important effort!
