Abstract INTRODUCTION: Focusing on the monthly prevalence of health problems and recourse to different levels of care of the population is an interesting approach to demonstrate the respective roles of different levels of health care. In the present study, the ecology of health care was studied in the region of Liège, Belgium. METHOD: A survey questioning people about their health problems was conducted in 2009 in two communes of the province of Liège. For each health problem, 'health care' was defined as contact with any qualified care provider. For each consultation, three elements were recorded: the profession of the health care provider; the place where the care was provided and the kind of health care received. RESULTS: A total of 537 people were interviewed. The monthly prevalence of people who experienced a health problem during the previous month was 85.1%. The monthly prevalence of people who turned to a health care provider at least once during the month was 62.2%. The proportion of people turning to doctors, primarily local doctors, for a simple consultation was important (49.2%). DISCUSSION: Our results are highly comparable with those of other studies. Recourse to a doctor is high (49%), which probably reflects the broad accessibility of health care in Belgium and maybe its overuse. Additional questions on the current and future organisation of the Belgian health care system are debated. [less ▲]

La Fédération Wallonne des Soins Palliatifs (FWSP) a été chargée par la Région wallonne de mener une enquête concernant les besoins en matière de garde à domicile dans les situations de soins palliatifs. L’objectif général de l’étude est d’obtenir un état des lieux de la demande de garde à domicile au bénéfice de patients en soins palliatifs et la réponse qui y est apportée. Le présent travail a tenté d’établir les caractéristiques des moments-clés que pouvait rencontrer le patient ou sa famille, à savoir l’évocation de la demande de garde, la concrétisation de cette demande, la recherche d’une réponse à la demande et la mise en place de la garde. Divers acteurs ont été rencontrés - les patients et leurs proches mais également les soignants (gardes à domicile, membres de l’équipe de soutien, coordinatrices de soins à domicile) et les responsables de services de garde à domicile – pour entendre les difficultés de chacun et préciser les obstacles rencontrés parfois.

Teachers are a ‘homogeneous’ socioprofessional category, which is organised and open to involvement and the promotion of a shared interest. They are an essential component of civil society on the edge or at the heart of the public sector. Whether or not they are integrated into the public sector, they share values: promotion of individuals, the emancipation and elevation of individuals, and social well-being. All of these elements are aspects which make teachers naturally open to mutual solidarity. They can fully assess the advantage of the mutual organisation as a complementary element to government social action or as a substitute for failing public authorities. They can ‘incarnate’ solidarity and reconstruct social links [less ▲]
