One hundred and seventy residents of 11 Leicester City Council homes for the elderly, with a total of 515 beds, were studied during a 30-week period from September 1988 to March 1989 to determine the use of influenza vaccine, the levels of influenza antibody, the incidence of influenza, and the protection afforded by vaccination. The study group of 133(More)
OBJECTIVE A laboratory-based program is described that assists physicians and their patients with diabetes in meeting Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) practice recommendations for laboratory testing. The program also supports self-management of diabetes by providing laboratory results directly to patients as well as their physicians. METHODS The(More)
