  1. Sentinel pathophysiologic conditions : an adjunct to teaching occupational and environmental disease recognition and history taking.

    Article - En anglais

    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.
