About this course

In order to improve cancer prevention, which is becoming increasingly important as the incidence of cancer increases, it is important that clinicians, researchers and other professionals working with cancer issues keep up with developments in the field. There is relatively good access to basic epidemiological methods, but there is a need for a wider dissemination of knowledge of new methodological achievements, both in terms of exposure classification and epidemiological analysis including biological markers of exposure and effect. This course aims to cover this important area of knowledge.

This course has been accepted as a theoretical course (8 hours) demanded in the medical specialist education in the training programs of occupational health services at the University of Helsinki in Finland. The acceptance is valid for the specialist training programs at the Faculty of Medicine of all Finnish universities.

Subject background

Today cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. According to WHO 19 % of all cancers are attributable to the environment, including work settings. In Europe, cancer is the leading cause of mortality and accounts for 53 % of all work-related deaths. The EU commission aims to improve the protection of workers against carcinogenic chemicals.

In order to improve cancer prevention, which is becoming increasingly important as the incidence of cancer increases, it is important that clinicians, researchers and other professionals working with cancer issues keep up with developments in the field. There is relatively good access to basic epidemiological methods, but there is a need for a wider dissemination of knowledge of new methodological achievements, both in terms of exposure classification and epidemiological analysis including biological markers of exposure and effect. This course aims to cover this important area of knowledge.
