||Sustainability of an interdisciplinary secondary prevention program for hairdressers
||Feb. 2010, Vol.83, No.2, p.165-171. Illus. 29 ref.
||To assess the sustainability of an interdisciplinary medical and educational training program, 215 hairdressers suffering from occupational skin diseases (OSD) having received the intervention and a control group of 85 hairdressers who solely received dermatological treatment, were followed up at 9 months and 5 years by means of a standardized questionnaire. A subcohort of 62 participants of the intervention group was followed up again 10 years. The follow-up survey 9 months after the beginning of the program showed that 71.8% of the intervention group could remain in work as opposed to 60.0% in the control group. In the intervention group, 14.7% gave up work due to OSD versus 22.5% in the control group. In the 5-year follow-up 58.7% of the intervention group remained at work versus 29.1% of the control group. Ten years after intervention, the follow-up showed a stabilization of the effects shown by the 5-year follow-up results. These and other findings are discussed.
