Practical Occupational Medicine

Practical Occupational Medicine

by Anthony Seaton (Author), RaymondAgius (Author), ElizabethMcCloyMcCloy (Author), Denisd ' Auria (Author)


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.

Media Reviews
It is difficult to find a place for criticism. The book can be warmly recommended for all the groups suggested in the preface: medical students, general practitioners and other postgraduates taking courses in occupational medicine, nurses, and clinical consultants....The book is very well written and easy to read.
Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment and Heal

An eminently practical book for newcomers to science....Many illustrations, mostly excellent, are provided...This book is an excellent investment, at relatively moderate outlay, for any serious entrant to occupational medicine as well as those with a general interest or involvement in occupational healthcare.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents

I unreservedly recommend this book as essential reading for an aspirant specialist in either Occupational Medicine or Public Health Medicine.
