Abstract
The role of occupational health physicians and nurses in the National Influenza Program is described, NIOSH efforts to improve surveillance systems for occupational diseases are outlined, and suggestions are made to improve the practice of preventive medicine in the workplace. The National Occupational Hazards Survey, scheduled to be completed by NIOSH during the fall of 1976, should lead to a better understanding of the pattern of occupational exposures. Difficulties encountered in diagnosing occupationally related disorders and reluctance in reporting such disorders, are outlined.
