Objectives and perspective:
1. To estimate the prevalence of hand eczema in a cohort of health care workers and assess exposures in the hospital environment that can lead to hand eczema . To investigate the knowledge of skin protection among health care workers.
2. To classify subtypes of hand eczema, assess severity of hand eczema and quality of life in health care workers with hand eczema
3. To evaluate the effect of a combination of classification of hand eczema and individual work-related counseling in skin protective behavior.
The overall perspective of the trial is to develop new strategies for prevention of occupational hand eczema in health care workers.
- Irritant contact dermatitis is more common than allergic contact dermatitis.
- The combination of precise classification (subtyping of HE) and individual counseling will have a positive impact on the prognosis of hand eczema.
- The positive impact on the prognosis of hand eczema will have a positive impact on quality of life (QoL).
- The knowledge of protective behavior will increase.
- Education in a skin care program will have a positive impact on skin protective behavior.

Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
Works about randomized clinical trials that compare interventions in clinical settings and which look at a range of effectiveness outcomes and impacts.
Work consisting of a clinical trial that involves at least one test treatment and one control treatment, concurrent enrollment and follow-up of the test- and control-treated groups, and in which the treatments to be administered are selected by a random process, such as the use of a random-numbers table.
Providing an investigational therapy to a patient who is not eligible to receive that therapy in a clinical trial, but who has a serious or life-threatening illness for which other treatments are not available. Compassionate use trials allow patients to receive promising but not yet fully studied or approved therapies when no other treatment option exists. Also called expanded access trial.
Work that is the report of a pre-planned clinical study of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques in humans selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. While most clinical trials concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans. Specific headings for specific types and phases of clinical trials are also available.
