Reed Group to Offer MDGuidelines Free to Medical Students - Return-to-Work Durations and Treatment Guidelines ,Will Help Future Doctors Consider Work Issues When Treating
Date:11/4/2009

Reed Group announced today that the company will offer medical students free access to MDGuidelines, its extensive database of return-to-work durations and treatment plans for disability, workers’ compensation and other medically-related work absences.

Westminster, Colorado (Vocus) November 4, 2009 -- Most physicians routinely treat working adults, yet occupational health fundamentals are rarely included in medical school curricula. To help future physicians understand these critical issues, Reed Group announced today that the company will offer medical students free access to MDGuidelines, its extensive database of return-to-work durations and treatment plans for disability, workers’ compensation and other medically-related work absences.

Reed Group President, Guidelines, Jon Seymour, M.D., says that, in offering MDGuidelines free to medical students, the company is spearheading a much-needed educational agenda.

“What people do for a living, and their ability to continuously perform on the job, have a huge impact on their health. There is a large amount of evidence showing that time off work is almost immediately detrimental to patients, and that ‘disability’ is a complex and potentially chronic syndrome that is not being handled well by many physicians. Yet occupational medicine is still overlooked or underserved in most medical schools,” Dr. Seymour says. “MDGuidelines can help educate the next generation of physicians in a critical area in which they are not currently getting much training.”

Dr. Seymour also says that MDGuidelines is a resource to help medical students manage a specific patient’s injuries or illnesses with respect to return-to-work outcomes and to measure their performance against other real-world experiences.

“Managing patient treatment to evidence-based guidelines is critical. In return to work, we have the added advantage of clear case data against which to benchmark. In the big picture, return to work is one of the best available measures of healthcare outcomes,” Dr. Seymour says. “Tomorrow’s physicians will be better armed to deliver quality care from having used this important resource in school.”

Reed Group’s MDGuidelines evidence-based, physician-reviewed database is based on more than two million cases and covers more than 1,300 medical topics.

To receive their free subscriptions, medical students should email freemdg(at)mdguidelines or call (toll-free) 866.889.4449 or 720.379.6979.

Reed Group will be exhibiting at the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) 2009 Annual Meeting, November 6-11 in Boston, Mass. Attendees are invited to stop by Reed Group’s booth (#605) for a demonstration of MDGuidelines.com.
