Developing Minimal Health Services Standards for Florida Junior/Community Colleges.
Caldwell, Joseph H.
Because little effort has been made to establish general guidelines for health services in Florida's community college system, the services provided by the 28 autonomous community colleges are dissimilar. A recent survey showed that only 10 of the 28 colleges had a nurse available. There was an exceptional need for coordination and cooperation among the institutions. Two years ago, a seven-member statewide committee was established to explore the problem of providing health services with the resources at hand and to develop funding sources. This report presents the results of their work: a statement of the purpose of community college health programs; recommendations for a minimal health services program at all Florida community colleges; and suggestions for the implementation of each recommendation. According to the committee, a two-year college health program must include emergency care, health education, evaluation of individual health problems, and heart risk factor clinics, aw well as other activities of a public health nature. The health program should be an integral part of the college's teaching-learning process. (Author/DC)
