Occupational Emergency Medicine
February 2011, BMJ Books
This burden of work means occupational disorders impact the whole of the emergency department. Michael Greenberg addresses your questions and concerns about the management of these patients:
- from triage to discharge, and beyond
- for all work-place injuries or disorders, whether office-based, agricultural or industrial
- and their employment regulations
Occupational Emergency Medicine is an essential reference for emergency physicians and trainees, featuring comprehensive information on legal issues involving the physician, and advice on managing occupational health admissions.
