ACOEM also performs an annual review of the literature to identify recently published studies that would significantly impact clinical practice and necessitate earlier revisions to the book to ensure their recommendations remain state-of-the-art. The textbook is divided into two major sections. Section one reviews the foundations of occupational medicine practice and includes chapters on prevention, initial assessment and documentation, initial treatment strategies, causation and work-relatedness, disability prevention, chronic pain, and independent medical examinations. The chronic pain guidelines are noteworthy in that they include a detailed review of more than 20 medications commonly used to treat patients with chronic pain, recommendations regarding the use of appliances and alternative therapies, and efficacy outcomes regarding various injection therapies. Although expertly written and informative, it is unclear why several chapters in this section of the book fail to include in-text citations for material that corresponds to the reference list at the end of the chapter. The second section of the Guidelines focuses on disorders with the chapters organized by body part, e. This section also includes a chapter on stress-related disorders.
Fifty years ago the ACOEM began to assert itself in the legislative arena as an advocate of limited regulation and enforcement of occupational health and safety standards and laws, and environmental protection.

The conflicted interests within the ACOEM have become too deeply embedded to be resolved by merely a self-governing code of conduct.

Evidence-based practice is the integration of the best research evidence, clinical expertise, and patient values into the decision-making process for patient care IOM, ; Straus et al. Thus, CPGs are intended to synthesize the available evidence and knowledge in order to create pragmatic tools for clinicians to optimize care for patients with specific medical conditions or undergoing specific surgical procedures. A trustworthy CPG can help clinicians and patients improve their communications and decision making about the risks and benefits of clinical activities, including treatments and diagnostic procedures, and can improve the safety and effectiveness of those treatments and procedures Dowell et al. In particular, the consistent use of CPGs can help clinicians reduce inappropriate prescribing of opioids Bohnert et al.

А ведь еще вчера она думала, что потеряла его навсегда. - Дэвид, - вздохнула она, заметив на тумбочке его записку. - Скажи мне, что такое без воска.
