A Dynamic Product

The Textbook for Maritime Medicine is a dynamic, web based publication without a fixed and ultimate form and content. As can be seen we are launching the second edition as ‘work in progress’ with some items that will be added or amended over the next few months. The editors are open to suggestions and offers of help to prepare further new material.

By registering as a user you will - besides having free access to the entire product - enable yourself to continuously receive information, updates and news presented by the NCMM. The editorial board has proposed a list of additional topics to include in future editions. These include more information on ship hygiene ( food, water and accomodation), sections on particular sectors of the maritime industry such as fishing and leisure, extension of the scope to cover offshore energy industries, both renewables and fossile fuels, and additional material on dust hazards including allergens and asbestos.

The discussion forum created for the first edition has been discontinued as users were finding other means to share their questions and seek solutions to their problems.
