Especially suitable for Occupational Health Advisers, Occupational Health Nurses and Practice Nurses, the day covers current issues in the diagnosis of occupational asthma and work-exacerbated asthma in a hospital setting, and examines the role of the Occupational Heath Practitioner in this process.
Workplace surveillance is covered, with input on the prevention of occupational asthma. Management of occupational asthma once diagnosed is examined. The implications for patients with such a diagnosis is discussed, and an interview with a patient volunteer is presented.
