Around the World Panel

Apr 25, 2017 9:15am ‐ Apr 25, 2017 10:45am

Credits: None available.

The first panelist will describe the work of the Manhattan clinic for the Mount Sinai Selikoff Centers for Occupational Health, a World Trade Center Health Program and Clinical Center of Excellence, whose work is based on the work-related exposures of first responders in the US 9/11 terrorist attack of the World Trade Center. The second panelist will focus on how to design and implement effective health programs for a vastly diverse population, across ASEAN countries, from the design of the program facilitates to the creation of preventative interventions to decrease morbidity and absenteeism, with the ultimate goal of these programs to increase morale and productivity. Finally, the expense and complexity of conducting research in occupational health requires that we remain open to emerging methods, such as social media, that can be both informative and cost effective within an organization, across a country and across the globe.

  • Identify occupational health exposures and long term health implications in the World Trade Center first responders.
  • Describe a low cost, high impact health program for a multicultural population.
  • Describe social media as a research tool.
  • Identify recruitment and data collection using social media.

Nanotechnology, specifically nanomedicine and nanorobotics has emerged as one of the most exciting combined fields in medicine, science and engineering. Nanomedicine and nanorobotics will change the landscape of work, chronic disease management, health-coaching, and health education. Learn about the safety and effectiveness of Combined Cellular Therapy (bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and fat graft) for the treatment of pain and function associated with osteoarthritis. You’ll also examine case studies of Zika, Tularemia, Eastern equine encephalitis virus, and non- human primate herpes B to discuss evaluation and treatment.

  • Discuss the evaluation/treatment and follow up for three biohazardous agents.
  • Discuss leading edge technology and scientific discoveries in the field of nanomedicine and nanorobotics and implications for the occupational health nurse.
  • Discuss the findings of a study assessing the clinical outcome of participants receiving a combination of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) mesenchymal stem cells, adipose tissue (fat graft), and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for the treatment of osteoarthritis.

Credits: None available.

Panelists will discuss their research results and the implications for occupational and environmental health nurses, including findings related to body positioning, a health literacy project and workplace hazards experienced by Latino immigrant contingent workers.

  • Describe proper body positioning and muscle activation sequencing that can be applied to lifting activities.
  • Discuss findings and recommendations from a health literacy education program.
  • List some of the more common contingent worker classifications and legal implications, industries dependent on this labor and national legal advocacy groups.
