Scope and content
This series contains four sub-series all of which are directed at Health Personnel or First Responders who may come into contact with bodily fluids during their normal work day.
Most of this series is information which targets the specific concerns of workers in public safety, health and emergency personnel. There is also information for Dentists. Most of this series in in the form of booklets or full sized bulletins or newsletters. One booklet which is present in three versions, two from 1984 and one from 1988, show both the progression of information and regional differences in how it was communicated.
Three items target concerns regarding Blood Donation and Blood Supply. The booklet from Saskatchewan Health is comprehensive in describing what all levels of hospital staff must do as 'Universal precautions against blood-born pathogens.'
Complementary Health Practitioners and practices are discussed in three newsletters on the following topics: Chinese Herbs, Clear Heat, and Acupuncture. The newsletters are 'Professional Health Concerns' and 'the Quan Yin Newsletter.'
There are a few training and resource items and one information kit from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in the USA. This kit is especially interesting to Health researchers as it contains the collections only examples of scholarly articles and abstracts regarding condoms as an effective preventative measure. It dates from 1993 and includes tip-sheets for talking points with patients and three A4 sized posters promoting condom use.
