Gathered together in this book is a cross-section of health care experts who discuss the health care concern of workers and company health plans, all from the point of view of behavioral medicine. The first section focuses on the principles of the application of behavioral medicine in the industrial setting. The second addresses the real, chronic health problems affecting workers and ultimately their employers - such as obesity, stress, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, smoking, dental care, etc. The third looks at actual health care programs, how they operate and their successes and failures. The concluding section deals with policy issues relating to health care in industry and provides some lively and controversial views from several different perspectives - economic, medical, managerial and labor.
