Written by and on behalf of the Association of Occupational Health Nurse Practitioners (AOHNP).
This textbook provides a practical guide for those training as, or practising within, occupational health nursing. Concerned with the health of the 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, Epidemiology and Research and Quality Assurance and Auditing. Discussion of ethical issues is woven throughout and each chapter is written by an experienced occupational health practitioner and includes features such as case studies, activities, learning outcomes, and chapter summaries.
This book is designed as a text for those undertaking specialist community public health nursing qualifications and as an important resource for all nurses new to occupational health practice.

"Contemporary Occupational Health Nursing is a book that all students on specialist nursing courses will want to buy. For those from any professional discipline wanting to know more about occupational health, or considering a career in occupational health, it is an attractive introduction to the specialism."– Helen Kirk, Occupational Medicine, Vol 66, No 1
"This occupational health text will be welcomed by anyone involved in workplace health management. It will be of particular value to students registered on occupational health nursing programmes as the material incorporated within it mirrors the standards set by the NMC for Specialist Community Public Health Nursing programmes.
Each chapter starts with the associated learning outcomes and includes particularly useful web-based references for further reading to consolidate learning. This is likely to become a core text for occupational health nursing and associated programmes." – Anne Harriss, Course Director of the Occupational Health Nursing and Workplace Health Management programmes, London South Bank University, UK
