Trial Publications, Results and other Documents

  •   Deutschlandweit wurden 405 Auszubildende an 22 Physiotherapieschulen befragt. Fast 30% der Befragten zeigten innerhalb der letzten zwölf Monate Symptome einer Handdermatitis. Die Hautbelastung entsteht durch die häufige Exposition gegenüber Wasser und Desinfektionsmitteln, sowie durch die mechanische Irritation der Hände und den Einsatz potentiell allergieauslösender Stoffe bei der Behandlung von Patienten. Stress und das Vorliegen einer atopischen Disposition erhöhten die Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass eine Handdermatitis auftritt. Trotz verschiedener Informationsmöglichkeiten, die von den Auszubildenden genannt und teilweise auch genutzt wurden, sind Wissenslücken deutlich geworden.
