At the age of thirty-six, at the verge of finishing a decade’s worthy of educating as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi used to be clinically determined with level IV lung melanoma. someday he was once a physician treating the loss of life, and the following he was once a sufferer suffering to reside.

Am J Epidemiol 122(6): 1080-1095 Recent Approaches to Retrospective Exposure Assessment in Occupational Cancer Epidemiology M. P. 6128, Succursale A, Montreal, Quebec H3C 317, Canada Introduction The primary aim in occupational cancer epidemiology is the identification of carcinogens, thus allowing the implementation of preventive measures. The identification of carcinogens rests on the retrospective assessment of subjects' specific occupational exposures, beyond the basic assessment of their occupational titles.

Occupational history is obtained through the use of a semistructured general questionnaire covering, for each job of each subject, the following points: (a) activity of employer or company, (b) occupation of subject, (c) description of specific tasks, machines and materials used, and (d) description of the work environment in terms of the usual place of work, the presence of dusts, fumes, gases or vapours, the activities of other workers and the use of protective equipment. Most of the questions are open-ended with the subject being encouraged to give as much detail as possible on his work activities and conditions.
