SUMMARY OF THE REPORTS

IMHA Workshop on A PRACTICAL GUIDE ON MARITIME MEDICINE

Vigo (Spain), 22 - 23 Sept. 2000

Dr. M. Luisa Canals IMHA board member and president of the Spanish Society of Maritime Medicine (SEMM) opened the session on 22nd September afternoon. In the opening session she explained the purpose of this guide and summarized previous meetings organized by SEMM . This project was proposed by a member of the SEMM in Oct 1996 as an activity for the following year and began in Oct 1997 with some collaboration in the first two meetings from the Instituto Social de la Marina in Spain. Communication between groups and at least meeting per year has been organized by SEMM. This year with the support of IMHA and the ITF Seafarers' Trust, that's why she made a previous presentation of both institutions.

Let's remember that this guide is for health staff - and specially doctors - and its main objective is to give a practical point of view to maritime medicine, collecting reviews of the main maritime medicine topics, creating protocols and other tools to guide in this special field of the occupational medicine. Four groups were created with main topics: 1 generalities and research, 2 medical fitness exams, 3 prevention and occupational medicine, 4 medical attendance.

Photocopies of the work done by the 4 groups were given to the participants and the coordinator of each group explain to the 18 participants present how the work was developed. Except the one from group 1 that was not able to attend the meeting, so it is decided that Dr. Canals coordinates this group.

The four groups are organized to work first by groups on the 23rd September and then in the afternoon meet again with the main conclusions. See the annexes with the documents prepared.

Main conclusions by groups were:

The possibility of a next meeting with the support of IMHA is suggested for next year.
