New ACOEM Practice Guidelines Now Available on the Web
January 15, 2004 – The newly
released second edition of the American College of Occupational and
Environmental Medicine’s (ACOEM) Occupational Medicine Practice Guidelines
is now available in an electronic subscriber version, to coincide with the hard
cover release. OEM Health
Information, Inc. (OEM), having exclusive publishing rights to the ACOEM Occupational
Medicine Practice Guidelines, has selected Work Loss Data Institute (WLDI)
to host the online interface of this updated reference text.
Curtis Vouwie, President and Publisher of OEM, explains, “The ACOEM Guidelines combine findings from the highest quality studies in treatment for work-related injury and illness with the experience and contributions of some of the most esteemed medical specialty experts of our day, creating a state-of-the art reference for managing common health problems and functional recovery in workers.
