Fitness for Work Summary

Fitness for Work: The Medical Aspects by Robin A. F. Cox

This is the third edition of the 'bible' of occupational medicine. This unique publication provides the most comprehensive information and guidance on the effects of medical conditions on employment and working capability. Every significant medical problem is covered and the reader will find practical guidance on the employment potential and assessment of anyone with an illness or disability. The book also contains detailed discussions on the general, legal, and ethical aspects of ill health or disability at work. The third edition continues in the tradition of its predecessor with each chapter devoted to a separate system and written by an occupational physician in co-operation with a clinical specialist in the field. This edition has been fully up-dated, particularly in the light of the Disability Discrimination Act. A number of new chapters have been added including one on employment problems in older workers. It is an essential purchase for all medical professionals who are interested in their patients' fitness for work. Corporate personnel managers, lawyers and employers trade unions will also find this a valuable text. From a review of the second edition: This book provides comprehensive, detailed, and authoritative guidelines for the practitioner...the book is well-written, concise, and indexed. - Annals of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
