Diagnosis, management and prevention of occupational asthma
This concise guidance, prepared for physicians, summarises the BOHRF guideline for the prevention, identification and management of occupational asthma.
The guidance, published in the Journal of Clinical Medicine, recommends that doctors seek consent from sufferers to communicate with the employer to advise them of the diagnosis and of the need to protect the patient from further exposure.

To coincide with International Women's Day (Tuesday, 8 March, 2011)), the TUC published new guidance on how employers and union reps can work together to support women through the menopause at work.
Supporting women through the menopause helps union reps raise the issue of the menopause in workplaces, and ensure that employers are aware that poor working conditions can aggravate symptoms.
The free Health for Work Adviceline for Small Business helps you to quickly and effectively address the issue of employee health, minimise the impact of staff illness, and provide essential support to staff with physical or mental health issues.
The adviceline will provide you with expert support to help you:
- get an employee back to work after long-term sickness;
- manage the impact on your business when an employee takes time off work through ill health;
- support an employee and benefit from their abilities if they are at work with health issues;
- encourage and support an employee who is off work, yet wants to return and contribute to your business;
- develop a working culture where work-related illness is less likely to occur.
The Royal College of Psychiatrists has launched a new online resource offering information and guidance about returning to work after a period of mental ill-health.
