WorkCompCentral reports that the OWC is reworking Louisiana’s medical treatment guidelines, with associate medical director for the administration, Dr. Roy Lee, at the helm. Dr. Lee is charged with updating the chronic pain section of the guidelines with new references, but he hopes also to make the final new version easier to read and navigate.

The total update of the guidelines will continue into next year and also address the cervical spine and low back pain sections.
