Título Tetanus: its occupational incidence - its prevention
Título original Le tétanos: son incidence professionnelle - sa prévention. [en francés]
Información bibliográfica Université de Paris VI, Faculté de médecine Broussais - Hôtel-Dieu, Paris, France, 1974. 49p. 75 ref.
Resumen Following a statistical analysis demonstrating the occupational incidence of tetanus, prevalent mostly in rural areas, this thesis discusses various methods of prevention, the only efficacious long-term method being vaccination. The author analyses the causes of the relative lack of success of the measures taken to combat this disease in France (insufficient knowledge of the disease and of vaccination possibilities, loopholes in statutory measures), with reference to the practitioner's responsibility and the cost aspects of vaccination. Solutions are proposed, with emphasis on those which the author deems most appropriate: more extensive legislation, educational measures to increase workers' awareness of this hazard, reimbursement of vaccination costs, medical identity card showing bearer's vaccination or serum history.
