Overview

This second edition has been fully updated with four new chapters and is aimed mainly at students of occupational health nursing but will also be of interest to qualified occupational health nurses. There is an increasing interest in this speciality of community nursing which is expanding and developing with the encouragement and support of the Department of Health and the Health and Safety Executive. The book is a topical reader written entirely by nurses working in the field. It aims to be thought-provoking, stimulating and topical. It starts by setting occupational health nursing in the international context and Iooking at European developments in particular and how these relate to developments in other areas of the world, such as the Asia Pacific Region and the United States. The book then goes on to look in detail at some of the core functions of occupational health nursing and essential aspects of effective occupational health services such as writing and developing policies and procedures, setting standards and issues of quality and audit. This is followed by an in-depth look at some practical applications of the speciality using case studies in the areas of health promotion, mental health, rehabilitation and health assessment. The focus throughout is on the use, wherever possible, of practical examples and experience from the practice of occupational health nursing.
