Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, DHEW (NIOSH) Publication No. 77-172, 1977 Aug; :1-185
Publication presenting the major papers presented at a NIOSH sponsored Seminar-Workshop, "Development of Clinic-Based Occupational Safety and Health Programs for Small Business", held May 1-3, 1977, in Cincinnati, Ohio. The goal of this seminar/workshop was to develop a mechanism for delivering occupational health services to small business employees. The problem was approached through clinic based health services for small businesses. Areas of discussion were the need for such services, national health insurance, legal requirements, costs, benefits, staffing, and marketing. The future success of clinic based service depends on revising traditional attitudes in occupational medicine, with emphasis on prevention rather than repair, and expanding the role of health professionals such as nurse practitioners and physician's assistants.
