Description:
This research study on factors associated with the admission to hospital of children with gastroenteritis is a welcome addition to our store of knowledge about the management of this illness. Such management decisions have significant implications for the effectiveness and efficiency of health services delivery. Of equal, if not greater importance, particularly in the case of children, is the humanitarian consideration of treating patients, to the greatest extent possible, in their own environment. This research study, together with my Department's Health Promotion Unit's leaflet for parents on the management of gastroenteritis in children, should contribute significantly to reducing the number of hospital admissions of children with gastroenteritis where this is medically unnecessary.
