This session is designed for those who need to keep up with the latest occupational medical guidance for firefighters, law enforcement officers (LEOs), and EMS workers. Participants will learn about the complicated
world of firefighter cancer presumption laws and the evidence linking firefighting and cancer. Attendees will also explore the causation of firefighter/LEO on-duty cardiovascular events and how physicians can help lower the risk of these events by addressing high-risk behaviors
and appropriately utilizing non-invasive tests to assess CVD risk. The newest section of the ACOEM Guidance for Medical Evaluation of Law Enforcement Officers covering sleep disorders will be discussed and will help improve participants ability to evaluate sleep disorders in
applicants and incumbents. Finally, the faculty will dissect the important elements of a LEO pre-placement medical evaluation and teach participants how to construct and execute effective, evidenced-based LEO new hire exams. Beyond the lectures, this session will allow for plenty of time for questions and discussion with leading public safety medicine researchers and practitioners. This session is sponsored by the Public Safety Medicine Special Interest Section.
