NASHVILLE (AP) - Changes to the state's workers' compensation system will be the focus of the Tennessee Workers' Compensation Educational Conference this week.

The three-day conference begins on Wednesday at the Nashville Airport Marriot.

The conference includes specific sessions on getting ahead of the prescription drug abuse issue, how to reduce costs with safety and health programs, and navigating pain management.

Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Janice Holder will participate in a panel discussion on attorney and mediator ethics.

The keynote speaker is Margaret Spence, an expert on return-to-work strategies.
