    Welcome to our NIVA online course on

    Chemical Exposure and Cardiovascular Disease

    27th – 29th of April 2021

    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.

    Course objectives
    Associations between chemical exposures in workplaces and environment and prevalence of CVD will be presented, and possible explanatory mechanisms will be discussed. Relevant methods for use in research projects, including early markers for CVD, will also be covered.

    Main topics

    * History of pollution and CVD
    * Epidemiology of chemicals and CVD
    * Mechanisms
    * Biomarkers
    * Other risk factors than chemicals
    * Discrepancy between environmental and workplace epidemiology

  • NIVA course on Work Disability Prevention - Bridging research and practice,

    Kurhotel Skodsborg, Skodsborg Denmark

    Work Disability Prevention
    – Bridging research and practice

    14th – 18th of June 2021
    Kurhotel Skodsborg, Skodsborg, Denmark
    This course presents “The Best Of” the highly valued 3-year course on Work Disability Prevention. Work disability occurs when a worker is impaired in performing his or her job. Work disability is expressed by continuing working but performing less, i.e. presenteeism, or by reporting sick, i.e. absenteeism. As such, it imposes large individual, social, and economical burdens. It is also a major concern to workers, their families, employers, policy makers, insurers, and occupational health service providers.

    Course objectives
    The objective of the course is to disseminate transdisciplinary knowledge with focus on theoretical, methodological, ethical and practical challenges in relation to work disability prevention. The target audience is PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and practitioners with a master’s degree who are linked to the work disability field.

    Main topics
    Three different Work Disability Prevention topics will be addressed and integrated:
    1. Introduction to Work Disability Prevention (including transdisciplinarity)
    2. Intervention research in Work Disability Prevention (including organizational interventions and health promotion aiming at both individuals and workplaces)
    3. Sociopolitical challenges with Work Disability Prevention (including implementation of evidence-based practice)

    Course leaders
    Ute Bültmann, Professor, University of Groningen, NL
    Angelique de Rijk, PhD, Professor, Maastricht University, NL
    Emilie Friberg, Senior Researcher, Karolinska Insitutet, SE

    Registration deadline: April 12th 2021

    Please note!
    We will do our utmost to arrange courses, even in these exceptional times. We have the readiness to arrange courses with modified concepts, allowing smaller groups to meet, in some cases national groups, and the possibility to participate on-line.

    Our cancellation policy is generous, so it is safe to enroll to a course well in advance and cancel participation if the situation makes it difficult or risky to travel.
