||Fitness to work in maritime navigation: A true evaluation of the risk of disease
||L'aptitude à la navigation maritime: une véritable évaluation des risques de maladie [in French]|
||Sep. 2005, Vol.66, No.4, p.318-325. 13 ref.
||A methodology for evaluating medical fitness to work in maritime navigation is proposed, based on the characteristics of the maritime environment and the need to take into account the short, medium or long-range prognosis for a given disease. The proposed methodology was developed from a real-life example. It is based on a literature survey, which is presented in detail and discussed. The justification of the aptitude decision is supported by a scored evaluation of the prognosis of a specific disease and of the potential injury from the treatment. In order to support the aptitude decision-making in the best possible way, it is recommended to couple the risk evaluation methodology with that of evidence based-medicine.
