Updated meta-analyses announced recently show that shorter life style changes starting before surgery have a positive effect for patients. Complications after operations can be reduced by up to 50% this way. Only intensive programs aiming at cessation of smoking and alcohol 4-8 weeks, starting before surgery have an effect on risk reduction at surgery.
- Quitting of smoking and risky drinking is part of good perioperative care that should be offered to all patients in need, says professor Hanne Tönnesen from Lund University.
A total of about 150 000 girls and women, born in, or with both parents (or mother) from, one of the 29 countries listed by EIGE (European Institute for Gender Equality) are registered in Sweden. These 29 countries are listed as high risk for female genital mutilation by EU and UNICEF and therefore recommended to be included when estimating national risk.
- We would like the Swedish national estimation to have a broader perspective and include more countries than today, says Vanja Berggren project coordinator. Since many years our Nordic neighbouring countries include more listed countries for example from the Middle East. That would have an important impact on the Clinical Health promoting work in Sweden.
