Inappropriate attribution of a disease or illness to occupation has been a growing problem in the U.S. in the past several decades despite the clear and convincing science otherwise. This has resulted in an enormous cost shifting of ordinary health insurance expense to workers' compensation insurance and needless anxiety and disability claims. The opioid epidemic has its roots in claims of chronic occupational low back pain and narcotics prescribed in the recent past due to misattribution.

Learning Objectives:
Recognize how the causation analysis works
Describe evidence-based approach to causation
List the required steps for holistic causation analysis
Explain fallacies of alternate causation analysis
