RR254 - The profile of patients' occupational health in primary care

To provide quantitative and qualitative data to answer the following questions;

  1. Why do GPs and practice nurses not take greater account of occupational issues in their day to day contact with patients of working age?
  2. Why has patient's occupational health failed to gain a higher priority amongst primary care managers and planners?
  3. What are the professional, social, and economic pressures that give occupational health a low priority?
  4. What could HSE do to turn these pressures around so that occupational health receives a higher priority and greater account is taken of the impact of work on health to the benefit of primary care patients, workers, and employers?
