Primary care physicians have an increasingly important role in identifying occupational and environmental (O/E) disease.
However, the basic skills in O/E history taking, diagnosis, and management have not been adequately incorporated into traditional American medical education or practice.
Reasons for these educational barriers are discussed.
A new approach to O/E history taking, based on a modified list of occupational sentinel health events, is described.
This list will give medical students and residents a practical, directed approach to recognizing O/E conditions and evaluating exposures in formulating a differential diagnosis.
