Chemical Exposure and Cardiovascular Disease
About this course
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is associated with several risk factors. This course will mainly focus on chemical exposure, particles and combination exposures in the working environment, while also paying attention to other risk factors connected with life style and environment. Possible disease mechanisms will be discussed, in addition to methods used in research in the field.
This course has been accepted as a theoretical course (15 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.
