  1. Paediatric utilisation of a teaching hospital and a community health centre : Predictors of level of care used by children from Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

    Article - En anglais

    Rationale.

    Inappropriate utilisation of hospital services for primary curative care aggravates inefficiencies and inadequacies in health care delivery.

    • (iii) predictors of inappropriate attendance at the teaching hospital for primary care problems.

    Methods

    A case-referent study design was used to compare children attending RXH with children attending Site B day hospital.

    All care-givers attending the respective outpatient departments on 2 randomly selected days were included in the study sample.

    Data were collected by semi-structured interview and record review, on reasons for attendance, demographic and social variables relating to the child and care-giver, as well as clinical data on the final diagnosis contained in the patients'folders.

    Criteria for determining appropriateness of attendance by level of care were developed a priori via a modification of published measures. (...)
