A nationwide survey was conducted in Japan on paediatric CT among children of public health and school nurses to examine a possibility for a follow-up study on radiation effects. A survey questionnaire was sent out to 3173 public primary and junior high schools and 317 public health centres during October to December in 2009. According to the collected responses, 410 (16.2 %) children received the CT scans and the total number of CT scans was 585. Most of respondents expressed a high interest in radiation health effects and an intent to participate in the epidemiological study that will follow-up the health conditions of children...

BACKGROUND: The advice given to immunocompromised children and their families on the use of public transport at our oncology unit has been inconsistent, with a lack of written or evidence based guidelines. We therefore carried out two surveys, one national and one local on this issue, to determine what advice is given to families. We also undertook an extensive literature search on this subject. METHODS: The first survey was completed by the Paediatric Oncology Nurses Forum link member at each of the 22 United Kingdom Childrens' Cancer Study Group (UKCCSG) centres...

Evaluation of the hepatitis B prevention education programme was performed as a survey including all the coordinators in 25 regions (211 coordinators; half the country). The success of the programme was defined by an objective measure (the ratio of vaccinated children to the total number of children in a region) and a subjective measure (the need to introduce changes in current procedures). The best information was felt to be provided on the subjective area, with financial aspects raising the most doubts. There was a high level of participation in local training by school nurses, but insufficient participation by paediatric nurses and paediatricians...

Between 1989 and 1991 two related research projects were undertaken by the authors at the Department of Information and Library Studies, Aberystwyth, into services for children in hospital. This article summarizes the findings of the first of the projects, a survey of book and library services to children in hospital, giving a national profile of provision. It demonstrates a substantial provision of reading and other materials available to children in hospital but a small number of library services, as such...

School medical services in Australia have a long tradition of providing community-based services to school-aged children, and in some states to preschool children. Conceived as a public health measure early this century, doctors and nurses worked in schools to address the health issues of the time, which were largely to do with nutrition, hygiene, and infectious diseases. It was perceived that many children had poor access to medical care, and began school with unaddressed health problems which often had a deleterious effect on their learning...
