Nevada Disability Prevention Coalition

Our organization is committed to helping to reduce Nevada’s citizens from needless disability and loss of work due to injuries and illness.

Mission Statement

We, the members of the Nevada Disability Prevention Coalition, have come together in order to:

  • Promote the adoption of a new work disability prevention paradigm in the state of Nevada. The work disability paradigm will be based from the American College of Occupational & Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) Guidance Statement entitled “Preventing Needless Work Disability by Helping People Stay Employed”.
  • Establish an effective mechanism for implementing the recommendations made by ACOEM within the disability system in the state of Nevada.
  • Promote and sustain the Nevada Disability Prevention Coalition (NDPC) to propagate the vision for preventing needless work disability throughout the state of Nevada.
  • Plan and convene a Symposium-type workshop for multi-stakeholders within the state of Nevada.

 

Working together we can make a difference!
