The investigators will compare two groups, an intervention group with a control group. Each employee of the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV) and the University Medical Policlinic of Lausanne (PMU) who will do his recruitment visit at the occupational medicine unit of the CHUV between 04/25/16 (end of previous influenza epidemic) and 31/10/16 (the day before the start of the next influenza vaccination campaign) and exert a function in regular contact ...

In a previous study the investigators found that many bakery workers were sensitized to storage mites, and many had rhinitis symptoms. The role of storage mites as an occupational allergen with clinical relevance has been questioned, and the investigators wanted to investigate whether a nasal provocation with a storage mite extract would trigger symptoms and objective signs of rhinitis in bakery workers and a control group.

The hypothesis of this study is that there will be a variety of factors influencing the musculoskeletal complaints among workers of different sectors. Work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) account for more than 30% of occupational diseases in the world. In order to organize the strategic actions that will be developed for the prevention of MSDs, it is essential to analyze in advance the peculiar situations of the different sectors of a workplace. ...

Individuals who have a mild stroke have a 44% risk of dying from a second stroke within 10 years which is in large part due to the cyclical relationship of chronic disease, poor health, and mild stroke which has gone largely unnoticed in the United States. Self-management intervention has been proven to be an effective intervention to increase healthy behaviors, improve overall health status, decrease healthcare utilization/cost, decrease depressive ...

Bladder cancer (BC) is a model disease system for evaluating the relationship of tobacco, dietary, and occupational exposures (which are responsible for up to 90% of BCs) and host-specific susceptibility factors. The induction of BC by arylamines (from tobacco or occupational exposure) is one of the best understood types of carcinogenesis. There is also substantial evidence suggesting that an individual's genetic make-up influences susceptibility to ... Read More

The purpose of this randomized controlled study is to 1. Examine the feasibility of a home Mirror therapy (MT) program in the NYC metropolitan area; 2. Evaluate the effectiveness of home MT versus traditional home exercise program; and 3. Evaluate the superiority of unimanual or bimanual MT intervention protocols for chronic stroke subjects with moderate hand deficits. Subjects from occupational therapy at the Ambulatory Care ...

This was a randomized control trial of a yoga and self-management intervention for individuals with chronic pain. Participants were assigned to either a wait-list control group (self-management only), or a yoga intervention (self-management and yoga). Self-management education session occurred monthly within the community. Group yoga intervention was delivered two times a week with a specifically designed program that was progressively more difficult. ... Read More

Stroke is the most serious disabling condition in the United States and the developed world. Novel stroke rehabilitation approaches, such as task-specific training, have shown promise in improving an individual's recovery in the rehabilitation setting; however, evidence suggests that these improvements are not generalized or transferred to the home, community, or work settings. Thus, these interventions usually do not impact overall health and participation ... Read More

Noise-induced hearing loss affects an estimated 5% of the worldwide population, with 30-40 million Americans exposed to hazardous sound or noise levels regularly. Sources of noise may be occupational, blast noise, or recreational. Trauma to the inner ear can occur through transient hearing loss or permanent hearing loss. Although hearing recovers after temporary transient hearing loss, growing evidence suggests that repeated temporary transient hearing loss ... Read More

The main objective of the study is the exploration of the natural course of COPD and its biological background. To this end, active workers without COPD and workers in functional classes GOLD 0-III are investigated by a combined clinical and molecular approach. The study has been designed as a prospective, intraindividual pilot in 160 male or female volunteers of the greater Vienna Area over a period of three years for each individual volunteer. Read More
