Contemporary Occupational Health Nursing - A Guide for Practitioners The AOHNP are writing a new text book for OH nurses. Edited by Greta Thornbory it will be written by the AOHNP board members who are all experienced and practicing occupational health nurses. Publishers, Routledge, said they were enthusiastic about the project, particularly as there has not been a new occupational health nursing book for five years.
The book will consist of 10 chapters including ones on public health, leadership, health promotion, health surveillance, health assessment, case management and rehabilitation, managing mental health, managing OH services, epidemiology, research and quality assurance and auditing. Woven through each chapter will be the ethical issues of nursing practice together with further reading and links to resources.
