This training will provide you with a sense of confidence in nursing practice, which will help you grow personally and professionally”

This new law involves the formal incorporation of changes related to safety, hygiene and ergonomics, and defines the competencies of the new prevention services. These services will start their activity mainly linked to the mutual insurance companies for occupational accidents as a complementary service in addition to assistance. 

This is where Occupational Nursing acquires a fundamental role in the organization and correct execution of the law, complementing its existing health care work with preventive, analytical, observation and health promotion work.

This Professional Master’s Degree offers the student the possibility of being introduced to and perfecting their knowledge in the broad framework of Occupational Nursing. The branches of this field range from the promotion of the worker's health, the prevention of occupational diseases and accidents, to the assistance of the injured worker with the follow-up of the process, the medical discharge or disability, if the competent body deems it necessary. All of this divided into detailed modules which will cover each field of nursing work within the field of occupational health. 

Furthermore, it is a topic of study that despite the fact that care and observation are on the rise, the figures are increasingly prominent in common contingency sick leave, representing a high economic cost for Spanish society.

Throughout the program we will carry out an exhaustive review of the main concepts that revolve around mutual and prevention societies and their main functions as private entities and collaborators of the social security. All this without losing sight of the nursing staff, who play a fundamental role in the workplace, since their role includes monitoring and understanding the contents of the data they handle and the results of the medical examinations carried out by the prevention and health surveillance companies. 

The role of the nursing staff is fundamental within the management bodies, such as mutual insurance companies for occupational accidents, in which nursing care is represented in all its essence: providing holistic care to injured workers, favoring the well-being of the patient, covering their recovery needs and managing everything they require from the clinical point of view: all this from the moment the accident takes place until the end of the process.
