It is extremely good value for its price as each chapter has been extensively researched and updated and has suggestions and references for further reading to explore the subject material in more detail. (Journal of Occupational Medicine, 30 May 2013)
From the Back Cover
As attitudes to work and wellbeing evolve and our understanding of the relationship between health and the world around us grows – occupational and environmental medicine is changing rapidly.
This third edition of ABC of Occupational and Environmental Medicine provides comprehensive guidance on current occupational and environmental health practice. All chapters have been fully revised and brought up–to–date, with an increased emphasis on work, health and wellbeing throughout. It includes new material on vocational rehabilitation, disabled people at work, evidence based practice and the ageing workforce. Further sections cover emerging kinds of occupational disease such as electromagnetic radiation, and look at the health effects of climate change and of occupational health and safety in relation to migration and terrorism.
Written by an international team of experts, ABC of Occupational and Environmental Medicine is a practical resource for general practitioners, medical students, public health and allied health care professionals, human resources managers and occupational health trainees.
