Study Description

Brief summary:

Children represent 1.2% of the spa population in France. Spa treatments, including climatic stays, are mainly prescribed for children in the context of respiratory, otorhinolaryngology and dermatological conditions. The benefits after spa treatments are the improvement of the symptoms of the pathology, the quality of life and in particular the reduction of drug exposures. Few authors have recently investigated the impact of spa treatments on the health of children and society, while care has changed significantly in recent years. Moreover, no real-life study of a large sample of children seems to have been conducted in this area. The present study plan to conduct a pharmacoepidemiology study on medico-administrative databases of the "observational study" type, in real life.

  • Condition or Disease:Otorhinolaryngologic Diseases
    Dermatologic Disease
    Respiratory Disease
  • Intervention/Treatment: Drug: Drug consumption

Outcome Measures

  • Primary Outcome Measures: 1. Drug consumption [ Time Frame: until 7 years-old of children ]
    number of Daily Defined Doses (DDDs)
  • Secondary Outcome Measures: 1. Population of children [ Time Frame: until 7 years-old of children ]
    population of children in terms of age, weight and weight characteristics and health through compulsory health certificates at 8 days, 9 months and 2 years, but also use of care and medication
  • 2. Description of spa treatment [ Time Frame: until 7 years-old of children ]
    Number and type of spa treatment
  • 3. Compare 2 data sources [ Time Frame: until 7 years-old of children ]
    Compare the population of children from the 2 data sources used for this project (departmental level with the cohort 'POMME' and national level with the 'EGB') to determine if the geographical situation of the department of Haute-Garonne influences the management of this type of diseases
  • 4. impact of SPA treatment on the pathology [ Time Frame: until 7 years-old of children ]
    Study the impact of spa treatments on the consumption of care in connection with the pathology that motivated the spa treatment, before and after the SPA
  • 5. Medical costs [ Time Frame: until 7 years-old of children ]
    impact of spa treatments on the consumption of medicines and care in terms of cost to society.
