Occupational medicine is concerned with the relationship between health and work and has preventive, clinical and population-based aspects. The role of the occupational physician is to ensure effective prevention of illness and injury arising in the workplace or as a result of work duties. Where prevention has not been successful, occupational physicians manage the appropriate rehabilitation of patients and facilitate their return to work. Occupational physicians also assist people who have illness or disability unrelated to work but whose workplace or work duties may require appropriate adjustment.
