Managing asthma in the workplace: an overview for occupational health nurses.
AAOHN J. 2004 Nov; 52(11):481-9; quiz 490-1.AJ

Abstract

Occupational health nurses are the ideal members of the workplace team to initiate disease management programs for chronic illnesses; asthma is just one disease for which occupational health nurses can make a difference. Employees win by improving their health and quality of life, having better control of a chronic health condition, simply feeling better, and using time off for vacation rather than sick days. Employers win by having healthier employees who are absent less often and more productive at work, and who cost the company less for their health care. Occupational health nurses are the key link in this cost saving, productivity enhancing chain. Being proactive in this disease management role clearly establishes occupational health nurses' value in their organization.
