Health of Children in Day Care, Volume I: A Regional Health Care/Day Care Workshop. Content Report of a 1978 Workshop.
Sparling, Joseph, Ed.; And Others
Workshop sessions focusing on the issue of collaboration between health care services and day care services are documented in this report. The keynote address elaborates the thesis that day care programs should provide therapeutic care, particularly primary health care for ill children and staff, and assistance in obtaining secondary care. In subsequent panel discussions a college level course on health in early childhood education is described, a day care center's policy for providing health care is outlined, the role of the consulting physician is discussed, and ways of utilizing a family or pediatric nurse practitioner are suggested. Small group presentations focused on dramatizing a problematic interaction between day care and health professionals, how to recognize and respond appropriately to developmental lag, how to use a medical record, and legal implications of health care for children in day care, including parental consent and child neglect and abuse. A report of a small group discussion provides a list of local resources for and barriers to providing health care services in day care centers. The concluding address briefly describes concerns and actions of the North Carolina Department of Human Resources in meeting the health needs of children in day care. (Author/RH)
