Original title Gestión por procesos de la incapacidad laboral en dermatitis de contacto [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information Sep. 2004, Vol.L, No.196, p.13-21. 7 ref.
Abstract Contact dermatitis is a frequent cause of work incapacitation accounting for 90 to 95% of occupational skin diseases. This article explores the possibility of managing the process of evaluating the work capacity of patients suffering from contact dermatitis according to "business process redesign" principles. This management technique enables occupational health specialists responsible for workers suffering from contact dermatitis to adopt uniform criteria for evaluating their work capacity.
