This collaborative e-learning opportunity is for all primary care providers in rural clinical practices who desire additional training in occupational and environmental medicine.
In addition to the broad base of general knowledge required to recognize, treat, and provide preventive health hazard education to their patients, clinicians in agricultural communities of Washington have additional information needs pertinent to our unique regional environmental and occupational exposures. This e-learning course addresses both current and emerging agricultural health hazards, using the latest research on best practices to provide healthcare solutions and resources on regional issues.
This program brings together an expert line-up of instructional and research faculty, covering basics such as workers' compensation resources and administering effective occupational and environmental health histories, and more specific topics such as pesticide exposures, asthma, heat-related illnesses, and lower lumbar spine injuries in agriculture. This program is being offered in a multi-media e-learning format to respond to the needs of busy clinicians.
