The presenter describes early psychological and pharmacologic yellow flags that occur with injured workers. These flags provide an indication that delayed recovery may occur. He will use a case to highlight how early intervention directed toward these abnormalities may be helpful in treatment success, limiting further impairment and assisting with return-to-work pathways.

Learning Objectives:
Identify psychological and pharmacologic variables that are yellow flags for indicating potential delayed recovery in cases
Explain active vs. passive forms of treatment in patients with delayed recovery
List the domains of patient improvement that occur with functional restoration programs
Describe RTW alternatives for injured workers when treated early with an interdisciplinary program
