Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sheila T. Fitzgerald, BSN, MSN, PhD (Johns Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health)
Description: This updated and expanded edition provides a framework for and conceptual approach to occupational and environmental health nursing practice. Unique structural elements of the book are the appendixes following selected chapters compiled from credible sources in occupational and environmental health that provide valuable resources for practice. The previous edition was published in 1994.
Purpose: This book soundly realizes Dr. Bonnie Rogers' objectives: to provide a framework for the development and delivery of comprehensive occupational health services and to address the knowledge, skills, and expertise required in managing these services. By incorporating environmental health information into the text, the book exposes the reader to a vital component of nursing practice: the impact of the environment on health and well-being throughout the lifespan.
Audience: The author primarily addresses the occupational and environmental health nurse, but the book has relevance for any nurse who takes a holistic view of health and assesses the environment (both physical and social) in which man exists. Dr. Rogers is a well known and knowledgeable in the field of occupational and environmental health and provides us with a rich resource to the field.
Features: The numerous roles of the occupational and environmental health nurse (practitioner to researcher) are described and expanded upon in this second edition. Valuable chapters dedicated to the science of occupational and environmental health (toxicology, epidemiology, ergonomics) are included. In addition, timely information is provided on workplace terrorism, the impact of genetic screening on worker health as well as the added disciplines of case management and international occupational health. Outstanding and unique features are the numerous tables, surveys, assessments, figures, and resources (e.g., Internet).
Assessment: This book provides a well written resource for the inclusion of occupational and environmental health nursing into practice, research, and education. The Institute of Medicine (1995) recommends that environmental health issues are key to the nursing role. Dr. Rogers, as chair of this workshop, has organized the recommendations into a worthwhile reference. Although this book incorporates content similar to the recently published Environmental Health and Nursing Practice by Sattler and Lipscomb (Springer Publishing, 2003), the organization and detailed appendixes of Rogers' book provide a more practical, user friendly reference.
