Item description for Textbook of Occupational Medicine Practice by David Koh...
This text provides a link between occupational health and clinical practice. Besides providing a starting point for health professionals with an interest in occupational medicine, as well as those intending to specialize in occupational medicine, the book aims to be a useful guide for all those who are interested in occupational medicine practice, includng medical students at various levels, occupational health nurses, general practitioners and more senior professionals in occupational medicine. The first edition is now used in occupational-health training courses in several countries, such as Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Jordan. The second edition is an extensively revised and updated version, with several new contributors and new material. The contributors are a mix of international and regional occupational health specialists and clinicians. The contents of this book have been streamlined to appear in two sections. The editors have retained the approach of examining occupational health issues and concerns from the standpoint of clinical presentations of the different organ systems. Clinically oriented chapters form Section 1. Section 2 comprises other issues of special interest to occupational health practitioners, such as screening and routine medical examinations, health promotion at the workplace, assessment of disability for compensation, medical planning and management of industrial disasters, and prevention of occupational diseases. Several changes have directly resulted from feedback from readers of the first edition. Among them are the inclusion of new chapters on occupational infections, the health of corporate travellers, shiftwork, and occupational health standards and legislation. As before, case studies have been incorporated in the chapters to make clear the relevant issues.
