Exposure Histories

One goal of the EHS is to incorporate environmental history-taking into the clinical practice of health care providers. Using a comprehensive exposure history can help the clinician understand the patient's physical surroundings, determine whether a current illness has an environmental cause and offer suggestions to promote a healthier home, school or work environment.

The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) offers several useful resources for health care providers and concerned community members. Continuing education credit is available.

The National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF) offers several pediatric environmental history forms. These forms are referenced in ATSDR's pediatric exposure history materials.

In addition, the Texas Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program provides a Risk Assessment for Lead Exposure, a questionnaire for parents with children being monitored for blood lead.
