A survey on knowledge and skills in the early diagnosis of leprosy in general health services at different levels in Shandong Province, The People's Republic of China

, : A survey on knowledge and skills in the early diagnosis of leprosy in general health services at different levels in Shandong Province, The People's Republic of China. Leprosy Review 71(1): 57-61

In the late phase of a leprosy control programme, problems arise with regard to the early detection and treatment of a small number of new incident cases. We describe a study in the province of Shandong, People's Republic of China, on the knowledge and skills regarding leprosy of general health service staff, including rural doctors, paramedical doctors at township level, doctors from county general and provincial hospitals and dermatologists. The results showed that there is a continuing need for suitable training programmes for medical staff in the general health services. Most dermatologists had good levels of knowledge and skills and more than 80% of new cases have been diagnosed in skin clinics in this province since 1990. Their participation in early diagnosis and training of staff should be strengthened.
