Health Care and Education. A Guide for the Migrant School Nurse; A Resource in Health Education for the Migrant School Teacher.
The purpose of this manual is to assist nurses and teachers in providing health care and education for migratory farm workers and their children. Common health beliefs among the Mexican American migrant workers are discussed in order to assist nurses and teachers at being more effective in teaching the migrant about health. Guidelines are presented for making optimum use of planning and organizing time for the Migrants Incorporated 7-week summer programs. The guidelines are separated into 2 sections. The first section is for the Migrant School Nurse and includes discussion of (1) pre-program planning; (2) preparing for vision, hearing, and dental screening; (3) setting up equipment and supplies; (4) getting the program started; (5) responsibilities of each position; (6) keeping records; and (7) all medical services. The other guidelines section, for the Migrant School Teacher, deals with health instruction as it applies to preschool children in Head Start and children in the elementary grades. The manual is appended with information on available audiovisual aids. (AN)
