About this Item

Neuware - This book integrates the growing clinical research evidence related to the emerging transdisciplinary field of occupational health and wellness. It includes a wide range of important topics, ranging from current conceptual approaches to health and wellness in the workplace, to common problems in the workplace such as presenteeism/abstenteeism, common illnesses, job-related burnout, to prevention and intervention methods. It consists of five major parts. Part I, 'Introduction and Overviews,' provides an overview and critical evaluation of the emerging conceptual models that are currently driving the clinical research and practices in the field. This serves as the initial platform to help better understand the subsequent topics to be discussed. Part II, 'Major Occupational Symptoms and Disorders,' exposes the reader to the types of critical occupational health risks that have been well documented, as well as the financial and productivity losses associated with them. In Part III, 'Evaluation of Occupational Causes and Risks to Workers' Health,' a comprehensive evaluation of these risks and causes of such occupational health threats is provided. This leads to Part IV, 'Prevention and Intervention Methods,' which delineates methods to prevent or intervene with these potential occupational health issues. Part V, 'Research, Evaluation, Diversity and Practice,' concludes the book with the review of epidemiological, measurement, diversity, policy, and practice issues-with guidelines on changes that are needed to decrease the economic and health care impact of illnesses in the workplace, and recommendations for future. All chapters provide a balance among theoretical models, current best-practice guidelines, and evidence-based documentation of such models and guidelines. The contributors were carefully selected for their unique knowledge, as well as their ability to meaningfully present this information in a comprehensive manner. As such, this Handbook is of great interest and use to health care and rehabilitation professionals, management and human resource personnel, researchers and academicians alike. 596 pp. Englisch.

About this title

Synopsis:

This book integrates the growing clinical research evidence related to the emerging transdisciplinary field of occupational health and wellness. It includes a wide range of important topics, ranging from current conceptual approaches to health and wellness in the workplace, to common problems in the workplace such as presenteeism/abstenteeism, common illnesses, job-related burnout, to prevention and intervention methods. It consists of five major parts. Part I, “Introduction and Overviews,” provides an overview and critical evaluation of the emerging conceptual models that are currently driving the clinical research and practices in the field. This serves as the initial platform to help better understand the subsequent topics to be discussed. Part II, “Major Occupational Symptoms and Disorders,” exposes the reader to the types of critical occupational health risks that have been well documented, as well as the financial and productivity losses associated with them. In Part III, “Evaluation of Occupational Causes and Risks to Workers’ Health,” a comprehensive evaluation of these risks and causes of such occupational health threats is provided. This leads to Part IV, “Prevention and Intervention Methods,” which delineates methods to prevent or intervene with these potential occupational health issues. Part V, “Research, Evaluation, Diversity and Practice,” concludes the book with the review of epidemiological, measurement, diversity, policy, and practice issues–with guidelines on changes that are needed to decrease the economic and health care impact of illnesses in the workplace, and recommendations for future. All chapters provide a balance among theoretical models, current best-practice guidelines, and evidence-based documentation of such models and guidelines. The contributors were carefully selected for their unique knowledge, as well as their ability to meaningfully present this information in a comprehensive manner. As such, this Handbook is of great interest and use to health care and rehabilitation professionals, management and human resource personnel, researchers and academicians alike.

From the Back Cover:

From its early focus on worker safety and job satisfaction, occupational health has expanded to encompass many disciplines, in keeping with the central place of work in people’s lives and the multiple issues it entails. Today the field encompasses such disparate areas as work-related stress, social and economic costs of illness and injury, and wellness concepts.

In keeping with this diversity, the Handbook of Occupational Health and Wellness analyzes and synthesizes the current research base in its theoretical, empirical, and practical dimensions. This comprehensive volume begins with an insightful overview of the field and conceptual models shaping current research and practice, then moves on to major symptoms and disorders in the workplace (e.g., pain syndromes, cancer) and risk factors for illness and injury. Chapters examine in depth epidemiology and assessment issues, gender and cultural considerations, health promotion, and illness prevention, and feature an evolving study of academic nursing program directors as they address occupational health challenges. Best-practice guidelines for preventing and intervening with workplace health and mental health problems are included as well. 

 The Handbook of Occupational Health and Wellness possesses a breadth and depth of knowledge of great importance to a variety of professionals, including health policymakers, health psychologists, physicians, occupational therapists, vocational rehabilitation specialists, disability case managers, insurance/managed care/compensation professionals, human resource and employment personnel, and lawyers.
