The Nuts & Bolts of Cholinesterase Monitoring for Farmers, Ranchers & Agricultural Workers
March 28, 2012 12-1pm Central Time
Exposure to pesticide and other chemicals can constitute serious health risks to hundreds of thousands of farmers, ranchers, agricultural workers and their families. For many people in rural areas, primary care practices are the only source of reliable healthcare. However, there are numerous barriers to recognizing and treating pesticide and other chemical exposures in the primary care setting. This webinar will address the importance of recognizing and managing certain pesticide exposures with a specific focus on the ways in which cholinesterase monitoring is a key component in clinical care for individuals working in agriculture. Participants in this webinar will receive information about new resources including clinical protocols for cholinesterase monitoring.
The webinar will feature Dr. Keifer, a board certified occupational medicine specialist and internationally renowned researcher regarding pesticides and agricultural health and safety. For over 20 years, Dr. Keifer has focused his clinical practice and research largely on farmworkers. The webinar will also feature Carolyn Sheridan, a registered nurse who been a national leader in developing agricultural health clinics and providing occupational health services to the agricultural community.
