Book Description

This second edition of the well-regarded Multiple Choice Questions and Revision Aid in Occupational Medicine continues as a comprehensive revision and study resource for those preparing for professional examinations in occupational health, occupational medicine and occupational health & safety.

The content has been extensively revised and updated to cover relevant and current issues. There are three sections organized by question type – MCQ, MEQ, and OSPE. Each question is accompanied by the correct answer along with a brief justification explanation. The subject topics cover typical occupational health/medicine syllabuses associated with professional examinations including the use of the ‘best of many’ MCQ format. The book is essential reading for medical and non-medical practitioners studying for these examinations and will also be useful to those already in the multi-disciplinary field or those intending to enter it.
