Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David Hinkamp, MD, MPH (University of Michigan Medical School)
Description: This practical guide to the diagnosis, treatment, and disposition of work-related injuries also features issue-oriented coverage of workers' compensation, administration, legal, ethical, and other concerns relevant to the practice of occupational medicine.
Purpose: The book is intended to fill a gap in available reference material by providing practitioners with a practical, clinically oriented approach to occupational injuries.
Audience: The book targets all physicians who see injured workers. It has special relevance for those who have entered the field "through a side door," such as physicians from other primary care fields who may need orientation to occupational medicine. It is also appropriate for residency-trained physicians who may believe they are underprepared to handle busy occupational injury practices. Contributors include widely published authors who have supplemented their discussions with reviews of pertinent anatomy and physiology. A number of chapters were contributed by practitioners with limited publication experience.
Features: The book is well organized and well illustrated. Good suggested readings are included intermittently and would have been welcome in other chapters as well. The references are uneven and appear to have been neglected in the Cumulative Trauma/Repetitive Mostion Injuries chapter. An interesting feature of several chapters is the prominently displayed list of "practice pearls." Though most are useful, some seem to be based only on the authors' own opinions and may be of limited value.
Assessment: This book is a valuable first effort to assemble in one place practical information on subjects of importance to physicians treating injured workers. It is presented in a clear manner in an accessible format and fills a vacuum in the references available for the clinical practice of occupational medicine. Purchasers should be aware, however, that writing quality and documentation vary from chapter to chapter, and the quality of the editing is uneven.
