“Occupational Musculoskeletal Diseases – Multimedia Guide for the English Programme Students“ freely develops the multimedia tutorial program“Occupational Upper Extremity Diseases” from year 2009.
The program “Occupational Musculoskeletal Diseases – Multimedia Guide for the English Programme Students” is especially meant for teaching Occupational Medicine in the master degree programme General Medicine in the English language. An illustrative and comprehensive processing of the theme of occupational musculoskeletal diseases is aimed at a more detailed introduction into these up-to-date problems.
Except for the most frequent upper extremity diseases caused by the exposure to handtransmitted vibration and overload of upper extremities, disorders of the vertebral column and lower extremities are discussed. Furthermore, occupational diseases assessment systems of other countries, especially of those from which the foreign students come from, are mentioned. Case-reports, an English-Czech dictionary of occupations and a test of knowledge are included in the multimedia program. Short-form videos directly from the workplaces such as stone quarries, foundries, assembly lines, medical or artistic working environments show operations which can lead to health disturbances. We hope that the users will welcome the opportunity of comfortable studying in the pleasant environment of the FlipViewer program.
