Mini Symposium at EPICOH 2.0.13

Improving the impact of occupational disease surveillance.
Chair: Malcolm Sim, Monash University
. Occupational diseases are major cause of death and disability in workers in both developed and developing countries, but surveillance data sources have traditionally been incomplete and of poor quality. To make occupational disease surveillance methods more useful for detecting new occupational diseases, to monitor success in reducing the impact of such diseases and to better inform OH policy and practice, better methods, improvement in data quality and more consistency in approaches between countries are needed. This minisymposium will provide an update and promote discussion on current gaps, introduce some novel emerging techniques to better detect new occupational diseases and monitor trends, ways to improve reporting completeness and the use of such data to inform public policy.
