The Use of Health Aides in Migrant Health Projects.
Intended for migrant project administrators and other professional workers, this document contains recommendations developed from a nationwide study for evaluating the utilization and effectiveness of health aides (indigenous workers) in migrant health programs. Recommendations are provided for five major phases of activity essential for effective utilization of auxiliary health personnel, including: (1) initial planning, (2) recruitment and selection, (3) training, (4) work supervision, and (5) evaluation. The recommendations identify the component parts of each phase and describe their development in a logical time sequence. A classification system for health aide activities, sample evaluation form, and job descriptions and career ladder examples for community health aide, community nursing aide, and sanitation aide are appended.
