  • SCREENING FOR ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSMS
  • 09.01.2008
  • Stoate, Howard
  • That this House welcomes the announcement of a
    national screening programme for abdominal aortic
    aneurysms notes the Men's Health Forum's
    campaign on this issue, supported by the
    All-Party Parliamentary Group on Men's Health and
    hon. Members of all parties further notes both
    that in spring 2007 the National Screening
    Committee recommended screening for older men and
    that a successful screening programme has run for
    many years in Gloucestershire and calls on the
    Government to announce a firm timetable for the
    programme's introduction without further delay.

Hospital admissions and contacts to general
practitioners. Sex ratio (female/male rate) by
age group, Denmark 2005.
Juel Christensen (2007)

Knud Juel Kaare Christensen
  • The analysis is based on a total of 35.8 million
    contacts to general practitioners, and 1.2
    million hospitalizations in 2005. The figure
    shows that at all ages women have higher rates of
    contacts to general practitioners than men with a
    peak between ages 15 and 35.
  • The difference in hospitalization rates for ages
    15 - 49 is strongly influenced by womens
    hospitalization in connection with childbirth.
    Excluding these together with all
    sex-specific conditions makes the sex difference
    disappear. For age 50 and older, men have higher
    rates of hospitalization.

17
Knud Juel Kaare Christensen
  • Our data, which are without any selection bias
    due to the Danish health care system and to the
    nationwide registers, show a male pattern with a
    lower contact rate to the general practitioner,
    but higher hospitalization and mortality rates.
  • This is compatible with a scenario in which men
    react later to severe symptoms than women
    so that they are more likely to be
    hospitalized for or die from these conditions

18
Knud Juel Kaare Christensen
  • The reason why men are reluctant to seek medical
    advice is probably rooted in biological and
    psychological factors as well as social
    traditions.
  • New generations and new initiatives like Mens
    Health Week might help to change the male
    reluctance toward using the health care system.

Patients shy about their condition flock to the
web and avoid their GP
  • Daily Mail Mon, 14 Jan 2008
  • Patients with embarrassing medical problems are
    turning to the internet rather than visit their
    doctor. A poll of more than 2,000 adults has
    revealed that embarrassment about a condition -
    or the GP's examination to diagnose it - keeps
    them away from the surgery.
