Precautionary and early detection examination in children and adolescents (U-examinationS U 1 to U 9 and youth health examination J 1)

U-Investigations The preventive and early detection examination in children up to the age of 6 is used for the early detection of diseases which endanger the normal physical or mental development of the child to a not insignificant extent. U-examinations are usually carried out by paediatricians and adolescent doctors or by family doctors. If the U-investigations U3 to U 9 have not been used, the persons entitled to care for the persons concerned will receive a reminder letter from the State Office of Health and Social Affairs (M-V ) (Service Office). If, despite the reminder, a child does not participate in the U-examination within the specified tolerance limits, the service centre shall report the relevant data to the competent health authority, denoting the examination not carried out. Child and adolescent medical consultations by the health office in the context of the reminder procedure in accordance with Section 15 b ÖGDG M-V Advice on support, assistance and therapy measures for infants, children and adolescents as well as coordination of measures in the event of abnormalities and health disorders Offer of visiting help to improve participation in early detection examinations in children In the course of the examinations and consultations, the vaccination card can be checked and a vaccination recommendation can be made. Youth health study J 1 The purpose of the youth health study is to detect diseases that pose a significant risk to physical, mental and social development. In particular, it is also intended to prevent a misdevelopment in puberty by early detection of psychological and psychosocial risk factors. In addition, individually occurring health-threatening behaviours can be detected at an early stage. The young person must be informed at an early stage about the health hazard strained by this. The youth health examination is usually carried out by paediatricians and adolescent doctors or by family doctors. The National Office of Health and Social Affairs (M-V) is working towards an increased use of youth health examinations by informing the guardian and/or the guardian in writing about the youth health examination and encouraging them to allow the child to take part. The aim is also to inform about the age-related vaccination offers.
