Abstract
The aim of this study was to produce positive life-style changes in patients with chronic renal disease through a residential education programme about the medical aspects of chronic renal failure and the various treatment options in order to increase their physical capacity, emotional stability and general well-being. The programme was available to all categories of patients with chronic renal disease irrespective of treatment modality. Comparison of data pre and post course demonstrated improvements in physical activity, mental well-being and nutritional awareness.

Abstract
Antenatal education in small classes may increase childbirth self-efficacy. In this randomised trial we assessed the effect of a structured antenatal programme versus auditorium-based lectures on childbirth self-efficacy measured by three single items. We found that women in the intervention group reported statistically significant higher levels of confidence in their ability to cope at home during labour compared to the control group. Likewise, the intervention had a positive effect on the women's confidence in own ability to handle the birth process.

Abstract
Asthma diminishes the health-related quality of life for many school-aged children. This study sought to explore the effect of a School-Based Asthma Education Program (SBAEP) on quality of life.
Children with asthma who attended grades 1-5 at two selected schools were requested to participate in this pilot study. Participants at one school were provided with a SBAEP, those at another school (control group) were provided with written educational material about asthma. The children completed the Paediatric Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire (PAQLQ) before and one month after the educational interventions.
There were clinically important improvements in the SBAEP group in quality of life, specifically in the symptom subdomain.
The "Air Force" SBAEP appears to result in a favourable trend in quality of life for children. A larger scale trial is required following revisions to the program.

Abstract
Community asthma care centers have been introduced to meet the increasing need for community-based assessment, management, and education of patients with asthma. The Asthma Education Centre at Oakville-Trafalgar Hospital, in Ontario, Canada, has implemented a comprehensive assessment, treatment, and education program with a collection of relevant patient data. The findings presented in this article suggest that these specific education and treatment programs are associated with not only significant reductions in the use of health services, but improvements in health outcomes as well.

Abstract
Patients with potential or confirmed spinal injuries are challenging for hospitals delivering care for trauma patients. In order to minimize further injury and complications, to maximize positive patient outcomes and to reduce length of stay, efficient and effective methods of caring for such patients are required. The purpose of this paper is to describe the creation and implementation of a "Spinal Education Program" at a Level I trauma center in Canada. It was designed to teach a large group of health care professionals how to care for patients with potential or confirmed spinal injuries in a comprehensive and consistent manner.

Abstract
The purpose of this study was to identify barriers and facilitators influencing the implementation of an interactive Internet-portal application for patient education in psychiatric hospitals.
The data were collected from nurses by means of a questionnaire with thematic open-ended questions. The data was analysed using qualitative content analysis.
Four main categories were formed to describe barriers and facilitators of portal implementation in psychiatric wards. These categories were organisational resources, nurses' individual characteristics, patient-related factors and portal-related factors. Some major barriers were identified restricting the use of the portal in patient education: lack of computers, lack of time for patients, nurses' negative attitudes towards computer use and lack of education. The main facilitators for portal use were appropriate technological resources, easy Internet access, enough time for portal use, and level of motivation among staff to use computers.
The specific challenge in achieving patient education with the computer in psychiatric care is to ensure technological resources and that the staff are motivated to use computers. At the same time, attention should be paid the relationship between patient and nurse.
It is important to examine the patient-nurse relationship in the education process and also to define the usability of the application from the patients' point of view.

Abstract
This study had a two-fold goal. First, to document services relating to breastfeeding promotion and support in CLSCs and, second, to examine the links between the delivery of such services and certain organizational and environmental factors. The data were collected in 1999 by means of a self-administered questionnaire sent to all CLSCs in Quebec. The responses indicated that breastfeeding is most often systematically addressed at prenatal meetings and through integrated perinatal programs. CLSCs belonging to a multipurpose establishment are more apt to integrate the issue of breastfeeding into perinatal activities; in addition, many of them offer breastfeeding activities considered innovative, although the average for this kind of activities is fairly low (33%). In addition, CLSCs that collaborate more closely with community organizations and those that spend more on perinatal programs are the ones that most often offer "innovative" breastfeeding activities.

Abstract
About one-quarter of Canadian post-secondary students smoke cigarettes. We examined how physicians from Ontario university health clinics intervene with these young adult smokers.
A convenience sample of 16 universities was identified and surveys were hand-delivered to all 228 physicians from these schools. A total of 125 doctors (54.82%) responded; 70 were from universities that were involved in a government-sponsored, coordinated, multi-campus, tobacco control initiative.
Twenty percent of doctors reported asking all or almost all patients about tobacco use; 25.22% asked fewer than half. Describing how they respond to patients identified as smokers, 96.00% of physicians advised cessation, 72.00% offered assistance, and 64.00% arranged for follow-up. Doctors discussed patients' tobacco use with 78.59% of smokers. Nicotine replacement therapies were rarely offered to patients wanting to quit. Doctors from universities involved in the tobacco control initiative were more likely to keep patient education materials in the examining room.
Because most doctors ask only some patients about tobacco use, they may be missing opportunities to provide appropriate advice and assistance to all smokers.
Physician education and support to the clinic are needed to improve the frequency and quality of physician-delivered smoking cessation services to post-secondary students.
