A lesson in raising awareness: Making the Occupational Link (secondary care level)

This lesson, designed more or less specifically for the situation in the UK, raises awareness for the possible occupational causes of illnesses. It stresses, interactively, the most common areas of occupational health problems, and possible sources of additional information. In addition, it teaches which questions should be asked to a person with health complaints to get a quick insight into the relevant details of his/her working history. Furthermore, it teaches in taking the appropriate actions in case of a likely occupational hazard. The lesson is meant for the secondary care level, but can also be used at the primary level (general practitioners) and consists of 18 slides. The slides contain orally presented texts, questions and feedback, and illustrative pictures and movies. Certain links can be clicked on to get an additional explanation. The lesson is given in English only.

NOTE: an additional lesson, also interactive and especially meant for the primary care level, on the same topic and with the same title is provided by the same source. The lesson shows additional cases on video. The direct link to the lesson is given in the Comments block.
