Health Services for Migrant Children.
Bove, Beverly A.
Intended as a resource for administrators, teachers, nurses, paraprofessionals, health coordinators, and community action personnel who are interested in meeting the health needs of migrant children, this handbook offers suggestions for organizing community resources in providing health care to migrant children. Poor nutrition, the lack of dental care, and statistics relative to infective and parasitic diseases, diseases of the respiratory and digestive systems, tuberculosis, venereal disease, and infestation with worms are discussed in the "Overview of Migrant Health Problems." Other topics discussed under the general heading of "Migrant Health" are diagnosing the health problems of migrant children, record keeping, and follow-up work once the diagnosis has been effected. Roles, responsibilities, and home liaison coordination are analyzed under the general heading of "Health Coordination and Education." Specific films; books; national sources; migrant centers; local, county, state, and Federal agencies; and state directories of contacts and migrant health services are given as health resources.
