    Following the thread of Ariadne to the health of women1996In: Health Care for Women International, ISSN 0739-9332, E-ISSN 1096-4665, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 201-208Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The health of women has risen to a priority position in medical research. Comparative studies of female morbidity are called for as an intermediary stage for generation of hypotheses and design of deeper studies of determinants, such as social, ecological, and individual factors. In previous studies, we have noted differences in female hospitalization between Heraklion in Greece and Linköping in Sweden. They were related to age and to urban versus rural dwelling, and fit projections for a more archaic and a more technocratic society, respectively. This paper aims at showing how the study of women's health may proceed from relevant hospitalization observations to the next level, of exploring already available indicators of self‐perceived health in elderly females.

    Hospital admissions in Greece and Sweden: a comparative study of two communities2002Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    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.

    Abstract [en]

    The study describes a comparison of hospital admissions during a two-year period between a regional hospital in Heraklion (Greece) and a regional hospital in Linköping (Sweden). The findings are considered mainly in terms of health care delivery and utilization in relation to various types of demographic factors.

    The results indicate that despite the different cultural and socio-economic environments in the studied districts, there are important similarities of hospitalisation pattern in the urban areas. However, there are also notable differences. The hospitalisation pattern seems to be more equally distributed between sexes and between urban and rural areas in Linköping (Sweden) than in Heraklion (Greece), where it appeared that the rural population, and women in particular, did not get hospital care according to their needs.

    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.
