About the content

Occupational medicine is a growing medical specialty in Thailand. The number of physicians who engaged in this specialty is increasing. Concurrently with the awareness of occupational health-related problems in Thai society, expansion of roles and duties of occupational physicians are raised.

Nowadays, the standardization of medical practice is a crucial issue. This action intended to help physicians to practice in a similar standard, which leads to promoting the safety and well-being of their patients. Occupational medicine is also a medical specialty that needs practice standardization. One method to standardize is to define competencies in occupational medicine. Since the set of competencies will guide occupational physicians to understand their scope of services and assist them to improve their performance to meet the standard.

Due to the perceiving of this important issue, therefore, Summacheeva Foundation prepared and published this book; “Competencies of occupational physicians in Thailand”. This is a book about the competencies of occupational physicians, prepared by a group of practicing occupational physicians in Thailand.

To make of this book, we are sincerely thankful for all involved in the preparation and publication, especially all members of the working committee who devoted time to review and made suggestions. We hope this book will give benefit to all of the occupational physicians in Thailand, and help them to perform their jobs that bring good health to everyone in Thai society.
