At the Intersection of Occupational and Environmental Health and Updates in Occupational and Environmental Medicine

THURSDAY – SATURDAY
March 10 - 12, 2022

Course# MDM22N01

Course Description

These courses are presented by the Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine in the Department of Medicine at the University of California San Francisco. They provide targeted reviews of one topic area along with a broader update of current topics in occupational and environmental health. The curriculum is designed for occupational and environmental health professionals, including occupational physicians and nurses, and industrial hygienists. It also meets the needs of primary care providers and others engaged in practice and research, including physicians (family medicine practitioners, internists, emergency medicine specialists), advanced practice nurses and other nursing professionals, and physician assistants. Policy makers and medical-legal practitioners also benefit from the curriculum offered. The first day of the 2022 course, At The Intersection of Occupational and Environmental Health, addresses subject areas that underscore the interrelationships between workplace hazards and those in the wider environmental beyond the factory door. Topic examples include endocrine disruptors; agriculture and forestry; and selected air pollutants. A virtual poster session the evening before the first conference day will supplement this content, including case reports and research data. The second day and final half-day of the course will cover a multi-topic theme: Updates in Occupational and Environmental Medicine.

Target Audience

This course is designed to provide the experienced clinician with a review of the epidemiology, and the evaluation of occupational and environmental diseases and injuries. The curriculum will also include a substantial component focused on issues specifically pertinent to occupationally and environmentally-related disease. Most attendees will be occupational physicians, but some are specialists in related fields who will profit by an in-depth presentation of occupational and environmental medicine topics. Thus, although targeted for physicians, some non-physicians, in particular graduate nurses, usually attend and benefit from the curriculum. Some attendees are from developing countries where physicians are not available to provide consultation to industry for the development of health and safety programs; others have been U.S. nurse practitioners who play a pivotal role in occupational health.

Objectives

Attendees completing this course will be able to:

  • Improve their understanding of their role in addressing occupational and environmental health topics in clinical practice;
  • Adopt new medical knowledge into preventive activities addressing occupational and environmental established and newer risk factors;
  • Increase their knowledge relevant to the evaluation of scientific data in the field of occupational and environmental health;
  • Expand the differential diagnosis to incorporate a wider range of environmental and occupational factors in various disease processes;
  • Increase their knowledge of diagnostic methods and treatment options for selected occupational and environmental conditions;
  • Inform the prioritization of clinical care, research, and public health policy with state-of-the-art updates.
