Practical Occupational Medicine

Front Cover
This book provides a unique, clinically-based introduction to occupational medicine, a field which is growing rapidly as industry becomes increasingly concerned with work-related problems in employees. This growth is reflected in the numbers of practising physicians taking introductory courses or diplomas in occupational medicine and the spread of occupational medicine as part of undergraduate studies.



The approach is highly practical, and the concise nature of the text makes it especially suitable for those just entering the field. Numerous case studies illustrate how typical problems present, how work-related issues are identified and how treatment is planned. The principles of disease investigation, management and prevention are outlined along with accident-related problems, rehabilitation, ethical and legal issues. The authors are all practising occupational physicians and lecturers involved in developing courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
