The debate will be
between Christina Butterworth, President AOHNP (UK) and Helen Kirk who has
taken on a new role as Public Health England - Head of Occupational
We hope the debate
will include the following:
1. The priorities set out
by Public Health England
and how they engage with the workplace and in particular OH nurses;
2. The role that OH nurses see
as priorities in managing public health;
Are they complementary
and is there the right level of collaboration;
4. Are OH nurses doing
themselves a disservice by calling themselves public health nurses on the NMC
as well as other
issues and will be of interest to many OH nurses.

Jenny Ware was the lucky winner of a signed version of Contemporary Occupational Health Nursing. The draw took place at the Book Launch.
Contemporary Occupational Health Nursing - A Guide for Practitioners The AOHNP have written a new text book for OH nurses. Edited by Greta Thornbory it was mostly 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 consists 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.
