About this event

  • Location Online
  • Organised by Occupational Medicine

We are excited to invite you to this meeting to hear from four trainees who will have the chance to present insightful cases they have managed directly, reflecting on the implications of a workplace visit, the range of occupational hazards and health effects, and the role of occupational management.

Now is an exciting time to learn about novel cases, and given the dramatic change in where people have worked over the past four years, we expect to hear cases drawn from various work environments, including conventional, hybrid, and agile workplaces.

At the end of the presentations, a panel will present to facilitate this meeting and summarise key points before deliberating and selecting the winner who will receive the £250 prize. Click here for more information about this prize and how to submit your abstract

So make sure to register now to avoid missing out on this opportunity to hear from emerging professionals and engage in thought-provoking discussions about occupational medicine!

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered event participants up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
