  1. The general practitioners'view.

    Article - En anglais

    General practitioners have patients on their lists who work in a variety of occupations. but the doctor is most unlikely to have had any training in occupational medicine.

    As a result occupational causes for illness are rarely considered by GPs.

    Little contact occurs between occupational health physicians and GPs leading to a lack of understanding of the occupational physician's role.

    These two factors, when combined, may lead to patients receiving sub-optimal treatment.

    This could be remedied by better undergraduate and postgraduate training, and by greater professional contact.
