Disease relevance of School Health Services


Psychiatry related information on School Health Services


High impact information on School Health Services

  • RESULTS: Only 28% of those with ADHD symptomatology had attended health or school-based services [2].
  • In this study, we quantified metabolites of the tobacco-specific lung carcinogen 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK) in the urine of elementary school-aged children participating in the School Health Initiative: Environment, Learning, Disease study, a school-based investigation of the environmental health of children [4].
  • Between 1984 and 1988, the total cholesterol levels of 6585 children from 22 schools were measured as part of the Know Your Body School Health Program. For the entire population, ages 5 to 18 years, the mean total cholesterol concentration was 166.4 mg/dL [5].
  • INTRODUCTION: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Guidelines for School Health Programs to Prevent Tobacco Use and Addiction were developed, in part, to help state and local education agencies implement effective school-based tobacco control programs [6].
  • Thus, periodic mass deworming with albendazole would seem to be a safe and effective method that could be adopted at the community level or as an integral part of school health services and could be expected to improve growth and reduce the incidence of diarrhoea in children [7].

Biological context of School Health Services


Associations of School Health Services with chemical compounds

  • A national study of fluoride mouthrinse adoption: implications for school health personnel [10].
  • While aware of the study's methodologic limitations, we believe the results support the value of the community physician presenting DOC talks to supplement the usual school health curriculum [11].
  • Addressing the threats of MDMA (Ecstasy): implications for school health professionals, parents, and community members [12].

Gene context of School Health Services

  • One fourth or less of those with ADHD received school-based services or psychosocial treatment [13].
  • The prevalence of allergic rhinitis is 20% to 30% in Japan. The present cross-sectional study was performed to assess the relation between BP and allergic rhinitis in a sample of 2,292 male adolescent high school students who attended the annual school health examination [14].
  • The status of the Growing Healthy curriculum (School Health Curriculum Project [SHCP]) was examined in the eight sites selected in 1969 by the National Clearinghouse on Smoking and Health to receive funded training and implementation support [15].
  • DESIGN: Biennial nationwide postal surveys (adolescent health and lifestyle survey, AHLS) in 1977-2003; annual classroom surveys (school health promotion survey, SHPS) in 1996-2003 [16].
  • Immunization levels were determined by review of the students' school health/immunization records using AAP recommendations for age-appropriate vaccines for these children at the onset of the study [17].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of School Health Services

  • In order to evaluate the Japanese nationwide school absenteeism surveillance system for pediatric influenza in comparison with the national sentinel surveillance for influenza, we used surveillance guidelines (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1998) to determine the efficacy of the school health surveillance system (SHSS) [18].
