A four-prototype approach to the occupational and environmental medicine (OEM) patient in a busy primary care setting is described.
A 2X2 table illustrates the two diagnostic, interrelated tasks during the outpatient, non-urgent visit : (a) sick ? yes/no, and (b) exposed ? yes/no.
One may have the basic skills for tasks (a) but feel insecure for task (b).
With OEM experience, creative use of resources (databases and consultants), and patient cooperation, a better balance between lask (a) and task (b) can be achieved.
The Environmental Medicine Curriculum Committee (EMCC) initiative described in Part I and Part II of this study has developed this patient-centered model to help the resident in training cope as he or she tries to deal with emerging patient concerns from the workplace and beyond.
In November 1996, an expert panel of consultants representing OEM, public health, and family medicine endorsed the prototype OEM patient model for further development.
