Poulsen, Roger L.
This survey was conducted to provide informational inputs for planning and establishing a community health education system in southwest New Mexico. Information was gathered concerning the opinions of typical area residents regarding needed health-medical care facilities, personnel training needs, services, personnel requisite to their well-being, and needed preferred health education. A modified random sample of households was selected according to rural and urban strata, and 400 personal interviews were conducted. Survey results included a reported need for more health/education training among 59 percent of the respondents. General household health care and emergency first aid were selected most frequently as preferred topics. Television and radio and adult education courses received the highest number of responses as preferred means of learning. Subjects also expressed concern about needs in the areas of increased manpower, physician-client relationship, improved physician service, cost of health care and services, facilities improvement, and diagnostic/preventive service manpower and education.
