Managing Meningococcal Disease (Septicaemia or Meningitis) in Higher Education Institutions. Guidelines
Universities UK
Students face many pressures today--pressure to be successful, financial worries and uncertainty about future career prospects. Good health is often taken for granted. It has taken publicity about recurring cases on meningococcal disease at university to bring home to students, universities and their associated doctors that students are at risk. In response, the British Association of Health Services in Higher Education (BAHSHE), the Association of Managers of Student Services in Higher Education (AMOSSHE), the Health Protection Agency (HPA), the National Public Health Service for Wales, the Scottish Centre for Infection and Environmental Health, the Public Health Medicine Environment Group (PHMEG), and the Student Experience Strategy Group of Universities UK have revised practical guidelines on the management of meningococcal disease. Helplines and Leaflets are appended. (Contains 4 tables.)
