Patients with ascites detected only by imaging modalities but not yet clinically evident are not dealt with in detail because of the lack of published infor- mation regarding the natural history of this entity. These patients should probably be reimaged after an interval of perhaps 3 months or when the ?uid becomes clinically apparent. Once the ?uid is clini- cally detectable or other signs or symptoms, e. g. pain or fever, develop, paracentesis should be performed and the approach outlined

Items such as IV trays, food trays, patient bedside testing equipment (e.g. glucometer, blood tracking device) and tablet computers (e.g. IPads) should be decontaminated with sanitising wipes (e.g. Clinell ® ) prior

EVALUATION OF THE CURRENT PRACTICE OF DELIVERING INTRAVENOUS OPIOIDS INFUSIONS IN A UK PAEDIATRIC HOSPITAL. Opiate intravenous infusions are the therapy of choice in severe pain. However, administering infusions to children requires complex dosage calculations, rate adjustments and often multiple manipulations of injectable medicines to obtain the final "ready to use" solution for both continuous infusion and additional boluses; potentially putting children at high risk.1 2 AIM: To investigate (...) the practice and accuracy of healthcare professionals (HCPs) in hospital theatres and wards in preparing morphine infusions for nurse/patient controlled analgesia (N/PCA) use in a UK children's hospital.A mixed methods study in which direct observation of HCPs preparing paediatric morphine infusions for N/PCA in theatres and on wards, focus groups with HCPs and quantitative analysis of morphine concentration in the syringe using UV-Vis Spectrophotometer.

the foundation for professional and service development to address inequities in provision of oral care. Data available on oral health status for children and adults with a learning disability relates mainly to specific groups. However, the overall picture is one of poor periodontal health and a greater than normal unmet need of treatment for children and adults (Shaw et al., 1986, Nunn and Murray, 1987 , Hinchliffe et al., 1988, Thornton et al., 1989, Shaw et al., 1990, Francis et al., 1991, Kendall, 1991 (...) to general well being” (Oral Health Strategy Group, 1994). The term ‘oral health’ includes dental health and will be used throughout this document. Prevalence of Learning Disability It is estimated that there are 1.2 million people with a mild to moderate learning disability living in the UK and approximately 210,000 with a severe or profound disability (Valuing people 2001). More males than females are affected, with about one quarter being children aged under 16. Approximately a quarter of the total

Chronic HBV infection (...) develops in about 90% of those infected as infants, 30% of infected children under 5 years of age, and less than 5% of infected individuals over 5 years of age (12, 13). Overall, about 25% of those who become chronically infected during childhood, and 15% of those who become chronically infected after childhood, die prematurely from cirrhosis or liver cancer (12, 13). There is no specific treatment for acute hepatitis B; treatment for chronic infection with HBV is costly and often not available. HBV
