||The impact of measures for secondary individual prevention of work-related skin diseases in health care workers: 1-year follow-up study
||Mar. 2009, Vol.60, No.3, p.144-149. Illus. 18 ref.
||The objective of this study was to investigate the outcome of occupational skin disease among health care workers (HCW) one year after attendance of a secondary individual prevention (SIP) course. Two hundred and fifty-three HCW participated in a secondary individual prevention course and were contacted by telephone one year after attendance. The follow-up rate was 81%. The proportion of participants reporting skin lesions decreased significantly (68% at follow-up compared with 77% at baseline). Seventy-two per cent reported that their skin lesions had improved. Nine per cent reported having left their occupation due to their skin disease. Skin care and skin protection had improved, while the frequency of reported hand washing was reduced. Twenty-seven per cent said their quality of life was impaired due to the skin disease, compared with 54% at baseline. These findings indicate a positive impact of SIP courses.
