This session explores how work can sometimes cause or aggravate a health condition, and how early diagnoses can be made to support the management plan.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Access relevant resources and advice on occupational hazards
  • Elicit a quick and relevant work history
  • Identify possible occupational causes of illness
  • Implement the appropriate action if an occupational cause is found or is likely

Work can affect an individual’s health, while health can influence an individual’s capacity to work.

Instructors / Speakers
Debbie Cohen,
Co-lead of the new National Programme for Work and Health for the Royal College of General Practitioners

Dr. Cohen is a Senior Medical Research Fellow at the Centre for Psychosocial and Disability Research, School of Medicine, Cardiff University. She previously worked for 15 years as a General Practitioner. In 2000 she left General Practice to develop her career further in Occupational Medicine.

Debbie’s doctoral thesis (MD) investigated the fitness for work consultation in General Practice. This work led to the development of an e-learning programme for GPs that is informed by motivational interviewing. More recently she has led the development of Healthy Working Wales and a UK project that has developed a new website for primary care about work and health. A similar site for employers will be completed later this year for Wales. She has also developed and now co-leads the new National Programme for Work and Health for the Royal College of General Practitioners.

Debbie’s interests are in work and health, complex communication and how communication issues impact on the health and wellbeing of people in work.
