This program is intended to help nurses practicing in rural/agricultural communities identify ergonomic issues leading to musculoskeletal injuries in farm and ranch patients as well as discover resources to aid in injury treatment and prevention. 

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: 
1. Identify work site hazards and potential resulting musculoskeletal injuries. 
2. Recognize the role of the clinician in preventing disabling and lost time incidents. 
3. Discuss the value of an occupational health history and action steps to reduce risk. 
4. Locate at least three evidence based reference and patient/client education resources for use in rural practice.
