Título An assessment of the prevalence of hepatitis B among health care personnel in Victoria
Información bibliográfica 25 Nov. 1985, Vol.143, No.11, p.495-499. 6 ref.
Resumen Data for this assessment was collected by means of a questionnaire, a serological survey and a review of notified cases. The only occupational group clearly at risk of acquiring hepatitis B infection is the dental profession (dentists, oral surgeons, dental therapists and nurses). There may also be an added risk for nursing and medical staff in institutions for mentally retarded children. Vaccination programmes for these two groups are recommended in the State of Victora (Australia).
