Summary
This survey, conducted in January and February of 1989, examined teachers' opinions on health and cancer education in schools of 12 member countries of the European Community (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain). A total of 2,750 teachers (approximately 240 from each country and 66 only from Luxembourg), of which roughly a third were primary school teachers and two thirds were secondary teachers, were interviewed face-to-face by professional interviewers during January-February 1989. Those interviewed were asked whether they discussed health matters, especially cancer, drugs, and AIDS, and if so with whom. The survey also collected information on respondents' views about causes of cancer and prevention methods they taught at school. Some questions focused on organizing health education in schools: who was responsible for health education in schools, the role of teachers versus doctors and parents regarding health education, and smoking rules for teachers and pupils. Another subject of study was the European code against cancer. Respondents were asked how familiar they were with the code, how well-known it was, how well accepted it was, and how they viewed its effectiveness. Respondents also expressed their opinions regarding whether the European Community or its members had the right to deal with cancer prevention. Also investigated were respondents' interest in different health programs, opinions about the best educational materials, and how well informed they were about health and cancer prevention. Background information includes respondents' age, gender, subject taught, years of teaching, type of school they taught in, and number of classes and pupils they had, as well as general information about their schools
