American Occupational Health Conference (AOHC) 2019
American Occupational Health Conference (AOHC) 2019 is organized by American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) and will be held from Apr 28 - May 01, 2019 at Disneyland Hotel, Anaheim, California, United States of America.
AOHC is designed for physicians who specialize in or have an interest in OEM as well as for non-physicians, such as industrial hygienists, nurses, safety professionals, and environmental health specialists who are involved in the field. AOHC offers a variety of educational activities for participants new to OEM as well as for the experienced professional.
The American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine designates this live educational activity for a maximum of 26.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The 2019 American Occupational Health Conference (AOHC) is ACOEM’s 104th Annual Meeting. AOHC serves two fundamental purposes: it is the premier professional meeting for physicians and other health professionals who have an interest in the fields of occupational and environmental medicine (OEM), and it is the annual membership meeting for ACOEM’s members.
Educational Needs and Learning Objectives:
OEM is the medical specialty devoted to the prevention and management of occupational and environmental injury, illness, and disability, and the promotion of health and productivity of workers, their families, and communities.
ACOEM has identified core competencies in areas where the OEM-trained physician should strive to remain current and serve as a knowledgeable representative of the specialty. The ten core competencies are available at www.acoem.org
The ACOEM CME mission is to provide educational activities that enhance the professional capabilities related directly to the professional work of physicians practicing occupational and environmental medicine and
(1) to promote physician lifelong and self-directed learning,
(2) to improve worker/patient clinical outcomes,
(3) to facilitate physician effectiveness and efficiency in carrying out professional responsibilities, and
(4) communicate the value of occupational and environmental medicine.
To address the educational needs of OEM physicians, AOHC is planned within the context of desirable physician attributes and aligned with the OEM core competencies.
AOHC content is designed to enhance physician competence and performance and to improve patient outcomes by providing learner-centered education in the most current issues relevant to the practice of OEM.
Upon completion of AOHC 2019, the learner should be able to:
• Evaluate current research;
• Analyze emerging issues in OEM; and
• Exemplify effectiveness and efficiency in carrying out professional responsibilities.
AOHC sessions offer focused presentations that cover critically chosen, cutting-edge subjects related to OEM competencies. Sessions are designed for OEM physicians and related professionals who practice in a variety of work settings and are identified by the following tracks:
• OEM Clinical Practice
• Management and Administration in OEM
• OEM Education and Scientific Research
• Environmental Health and Risk Management
• Regulatory, Legal, Military, and Governmental OEM Practice
• Innovation and Forward-Thinking
Pre- and post-conference courses are designed to enrich participants’ understanding of concepts and issues related to OEM, giving physicians the knowledge necessary to sustain a competitive edge. Content is driven by research, the latest in regulatory issues, and the expertise of the faculty. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged; a separate registration fee is required.
