The Development of Health Programs for Junior and Community Colleges: An Interpretation of Recommended Standards and Practices for a College Health Program.
American Coll. Health Association, Evanston, IL.
The basic premise of this document is that every community college should have a plan through which the health needs of students, faculty and staff can be met by health services which are available, accessible and of high quality. Services should be available in each of the following program areas: personal medical, mental health, and other direct health care, including community-oriented preventive services; environmental surveillance and control; and health education. In meeting this standard, however, it is not necessary for a community college to directly provide services in all these areas; it may be possible to create and maintain a comprehensive and effective health program through coordination of medical, environmental, and educational services which are available throughout the community. The document reviews the procedures for setting up a comprehensive health program in a community college, describes in depth the various services and activities to be included, discusses the health personnel and physical plant necessary for a complete program, and reviews the business management procedures of a good health program.
