Abstract [en]

Cancer frequency has been studied in a Department of Crete and a Department of Sweden, using in-patient data collected in the Departmental Hospitals, for a two-year period. The results of the study suggest that similar trends exist in the prevalence of different forms of cancer between the two areas studied, as well as some significant differences. The differences observed concern mainly the frequency of cancers of the lung, prostate, bladder and large bowel among men and breast and large bowel among women. These findings could to a great extent be explained by life-style and environmental differences between the two areas and are consistent with data concerning the cancer mortality in the two countries.

Abstract [en]

This thesis reports comparative studies of admissions to regional hospitals in two communities, one in Greece and one in Sweden, during a two-year period, 1986-1987. The comparison was made using care episode diagnoses coded in the International Classification of Diseases, ICD 9. All cases hospitalised during this period were distributed by age, sex, residence and diagnoses.

The results indicate that even if there were cultural and socio-economic differences between the two areas, there were also important similarities in the hospitalisation patterns. The hospitalisations seemed to be more equally distributed between the sexes and between urban and rural areas in Sweden than in Greece, where it appeared that the rural population, and women in particular, did not get hospital care according to their needs. It was also found that study of hospital admission is associated with methodological difficulties because the use of hospital services is a complex phenomenon. The thesis includes discussions about the variety of factors that can have influenced the results.
