  1. Oral rehydration therapy-qualitative studies of balance between pragmatism and scientific rigour in managing diarrhoea.

    Article - En anglais

    In the experience of the author, oral rehydration therapy has proven effective at home, in the ambulatory and in the institutional care setting.

    A series of anecdotal reports on the successful use of oral rehydration on refugees, in famine and poverty, on medical students, prisoners, and the well-off people of western countries, is presented.

    The essential principles of oral rehydration are identified and we show how these can be adapted to a particular health care setting.

    A clear understanding of local attitudes and beliefs about diarrhoea is essential to professional health workers if they are to act as agents of change.
