In order to lay the foundation for the development of an agenda for health services research among Hispanics for the 1980's and beyond, over 200 conference participants drawn from among Hispanic and non-Hispanic health service researchers, health providers, users of research data, health science students, consumers, and representatives of Mexico's Ministry of Health addressed health problems of U.S. Hispanics, identified needed areas of research, and recommended methods of conducting health research among Hispanic populations. Following initial addresses regarding Chicano culture, accountability in Hispanic health services research, and the development of the agenda, participants divided into four task forces to hear and discuss solicited papers and make recommendations. Task force one focused on the impact of national, regional, state, and local policies regarding health services for Hispanics, and recommended research topics in the areas of policy formation, program implementation, and program evaluation. Task force two studied sociocultural influences on health services research and delivery for Hispanics. Task force three focused on resource development strategies for conducting health services research among Hispanic populations. Its recommendations addressed language use, research tools, health science education curricula, and intervention in specific diseases. Task force four studied the facilitation of timely dissemination, assessment, and use of Hispanic health services research. (Author/SB)
