About this item

This textbook – now thoroughly revised and updated – provides a practical guide for those in training, or practising within, occupational health nursing. Concerned with the health of people at work and the effects of work on health and health on work, this distinctive branch of public health nursing requires specific knowledge and skills.

Contemporary Occupational Health Nursing includes chapters on: public health, leadership, health promotion and protection, health surveillance, health assessment, case management and rehabilitation, mental health, management of occupational health services and epidemiology and research, quality assurance and audit. The second edition includes additional content on health risk assessment and the Fit for Work Service, occupational health management systems, psychosocial factors and mindfulness, among other things.

Discussion of ethical issues is woven throughout and each chapter is written by an experienced occupational health nurse practitioner and includes features such as case studies, activities, learning objectives and chapter summaries. This book can be used as a text by those undertaking specialist community public health nursing qualifications and as an important resource for all nurses working in occupational health practice.
