  1. Investigating clusters in the workplace and beyond.

    Article - En anglais

    Clusters of disease are common and occur in the workplace and in the general community.

    They often arouse considerable concern among the population.

    Investigations have sometimes lead to exciting new knowledge, but in general the investigation of clusters is difficult and often unrewarding, especially for community clusters.

    In the workplace, investigations are more likely to find associations and even new causes, but still many clusters remain enigmatic.

    Despite this, there are many reasons for investigating clusters, including allaying community concern and identifying uncontrolled exposures.

    A structure for investigating clusters in the workplace is suggested.
