Health Aide Training Conference: Enhancing Health Services through Auxiliary Personnel; April-May 1969.
Public Health Service (DHEW), Washington, DC. Migrant Health Service.; California State Dept. of Public Health, Berkeley.
The proceedings of a training conference for health aides and professionals from migrant health projects and other programs in California and other states, held April 29-May 1, 1969, includes introductory notes on the objectives of the conference, and accounts of points raised in discussions on the roles, employment, training, and supervision of health aides. Topics raised by both health aides and professionals included the position of the health aide in improving communication between client and health service; the difficulties of defining the health aide position as more than a menial one; the likelihood that professionals may feel threatened by the aides' ability to communicate with clients (particularly Spanish-speaking clients); and others relevant to the effective use of aides within the health service. Post-conference evaluation, list of participants, guidelines for group discussions, program guidelines, and a selected bibliography are included. (MF)
