ACOEM publishes the monthly Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine; ACOEM E-News; MRO Update newsletter; CDME Review newsletter; and books, including the Occupational Medicine Practice Guidelines.
The College periodically issues position papers and committee reports that set practice guidelines for a variety of workplace/environmental settings. These position papers and committee reports cover topics such as spirometry, mold, environmental tobacco smoke, noise-induced hearing loss, multiple chemical sensitivities, workplace drug screening, confidentiality of medical information, depression screening, and reproductive hazards. ACOEM has also established a Code of Ethical Conduct to guide occupational and environmental physicians.
ACOEM members are knowledgeable and capable of treating job-related diseases, recognizing and resolving workplace hazards, instituting rehabilitation methods, and providing well-managed care. The continual emergence of new chemicals, complex tools, manufacturing methodologies, pollution and environmental-impacting activities, and healthcare reform have focused and mandated the need for trained occupational and environmental medical specialists.
