Guidelines for the Use of Health Aides in Migrant Health Projects. New Careers Perspectives Reprint Series Number 7.
These guidelines are the outcome of a nationwide study which evaluated the effectiveness of the aides employed by sponsors of projects under the Migrant Health Act of 1962. Intended to assist project administrators and other professional workers, the guidelines are organized within a system model consisting of five major phases. The initial planning phase includes formulation of program objectives, determination of program activities, identification of auxiliary staff functions, development of job descriptions, and determination of employment standards. The recruitment phase includes determination of minimum qualifications for positions, development of selection criteria, and recruitment and selection. The training phase involves: (1) developing objectives, (2) identifying knowledges, skills, and attitudes, (3) determining appropriate teaching methods, (4) selecting educational materials, (5) conducting the training program, and (6) evaluating the accomplishments of training. Other phases described concern supervision and evaluation. Appendixes include a classification system for aide activities, job descriptions for various kinds of aides, and examples of career ladders.
