Occupational & Environmental Medicine

These are designed to help you achieve important learning objectives in Occupational and Environmental Medicine. You should attempt these on your own, or with a colleague. Some of the tasks may be tackled in small group teaching. Your teachers will advise.


Consider a specific patient that you have seen in general medical practice or in hospital (for example, after an operation, or recovering from a myocardial infarct). Is he/she fit to perform his/her job effectively and safely? 

What can be done to rehabilitate the patient back to work? 

Take a careful history and consider changes in tasks, facilities, hours worked or other means of occupational rehabilitation.
