  1. Health surveillance : An operational imperative ?

    Article - En anglais

    Many recent operations have highlighted the problem of hazard exposure in troops.

    This is a difficult area since it depends upon both post-deployment and possibly mid-deployment health surveillance and crosses the traditional limits of occupation and public health medicine.

    Health surveillance is itself a term which straddles occupational and public health medicine.

    For the military population at risk on operations, a combined approach is required incorporating the separate activities of needs and risk assessments.

    There is an existing vehicle to develop this approach using the new J95 methodology.

    Equally, a system of data access crossing medical and personnel records is necessary.

    The important requirement is that health surveillance is included in pre-deployment planning.

    Only by this method can adequate resources and significance be accorded to appropriate health surveillance strategies both during and following an operation as required.
