abstractScreening provides a means for 11filtering disease from the population11, until then unrecognized by patient or physician. In an increasing number of diseases, early detection is helpful in preventing serious consequences, by treatment or by genetic counseling on the recurrence risk of congenital disorders. New developments in the early detection of genetic metabolic diseases and other congenital disorders, which are a frequent cause of infant morbidity and mortality, have proceeded rapidly during the last decades (see Galjaard, 1980). Neonatal screening is one of these developments and contributes to the improvement of the prognosis of several diseases in early infancy. Screening for phenylketonuria is, at present, a common procedure in many countries. Other diseases such as maple syrup urine disease, homocystinuria, histidine...
Children with cerebral palsy (CP) and their families often make strong demands on diagnostic, therapeutic, technical and social facilities. Prevalence estimates are needed to improve treatment and services. As recent Dutch data are not available, the present study aimed to assess the population prevalence of CP in the Netherlands. A representative Dutch area with 1.2 million inhabitants of which 172,000 were born between 1977 and 1988 was studied. To ascertain the children with CP from these birth years, medical practices (such as rehabilitation centres, paediatric and child neurological departments) were consecutively asked to contact their (supposed) CP cases. Next, a parents’ organisation and finally regional news media assisted in the ascertainment. In total, 170 ‘supposed’ CP cases underwent an expert examination. Of these 170, 12...

This bachelor-thesis concerns artefacts made of the French Grand-Pressigny flint, found in the Netherlands. The thesis covers the distribution, datings, archaeological contexts, socio-economic meanings and status of this French flint in the Netherlands based on an inventory of the Grand-Pressigny flint finds known from the Netherlands and a literature study. De central case-study in this thesis is a Grand-Pressigny flake scraper found near Eibergen (Gelderland). This scraper is a surface find and lacks original archaeological context information. The artefact originates probably from a settlement site rather than a burial context. This interpretation is mainly based on the fact that no other late SGC grave gifts have typo-morphological similarities with this object. It is an exceptional find; no other Grand-Pressigny flake tools or s...
Nowhere else in Europe does social housing dominate the housing market as it does in the Netherlands. Over one third of all households rent a social-sector dwelling. There are 2.4 million social rented dwellings, a number that has been stable during the last decade. Almost all social housing is owned by housing associations. These have to act on a commercial basis, but are required to use their profits for meeting general housing need - that is, for housing those people who are not able to find decent housing themselves. Housing associations are able to operate in a very flexible (or arbitrary) way. Much of the current discussion in the Netherlands surrounds the use of this flexibility.
In the Netherlands, timber is rarely used as primary material in medium rise buildings. The production of these timber buildings is very small compared to the total medium rise production. Because of this, timber as a construction method is an uncommon choice for designers and contractors to make. This results in a slow growing experience with timber. Therefore this research examines the technical feasibility of timber as a load bearing structure in medium rise buildings based on Dutch design requirements. The use of timber in Dutch medium rise buildings is examined by designing a 12 storey high hotel using timber as the primary load bearing structure. The design of the structure is based on cross laminated timber (CLT) panels. The material is extremely strong and stiff making the use of CLT in medium rise buildings very suitable.
Purpose - To provide a current state of the art of government communication in The Netherlands which can help to promote a dialogue about how communication quality in this field can be improved further. Design/methodology - In 2006 a survey was conducted for the second time to trace the communication trends in ministries, provinces, municipalities and water boards. The survey was set up in association with sector representatives and it is implemented every two years. The respondents were the top manager and the communication managers of all organizations in the 4 public sectors. The questionnaire was answered online and the response was 33%. Findings - The communication budget remained reasonably intact, even in more difficult years, and is now regarded with cautious optimism. The principal goals of government communication are to m...
In this article we examine to what extent norms of filial obligation in the Netherlands are shaped by group value patterns, family constellation, possibilities for helping others, and actual experiences of support exchange. The data are drawn from the first wave of the combined main and migrant sample of the Netherlands Kinship Panel Study, the Dutch participant in the Generations and Gender Programme. The Dutch appear reluctant to prescribe how other people should behave towards their ageing parents. Value patterns are the strongest determinants of filial norms, with migrants, the low-educated, and persons with religious beliefs espousing strong filial norms. Contrary to what traditional gender roles would suggest, women less strongly endorse norms of filial obligation than men, and contrary to the notion that divorce weakens family t...
