Dr Jim Douglas, GP in Fort William, has kindly given permission for RuralGP.com to publish a presentation that he gave recently about rural occupational health. In this talk, he gives a whistle-stop tour through some of the agricultural and industrial issues that are most common throughout rural Scotland.
Following this, he introduces some concepts about diving medicine, and the physiological adaptations that should be taken into account especially if treating “dive emergencies”.
RuralGP.com welcomes any presentations that would be of interest to other rural GPs or trainees. Assistance can be provided in publishing PowerPoint or other presentation files, along with merging these with recorded speech. Through funding from the RCGP, a dictaphone is also available for easily recording presentations in real time… if you’re interested in this, please get in touch.
