How To Use Site-Monitoring Teams To Evaluate School-Based and School-Linked Health Centers.
Center for Population Options, Washington, DC.
School-based and -linked health centers (SBHC and SLHC) are becoming innovative centers for providing health care to adolescents. The Center for Population Options (CPO) has designed a site-monitoring team model for SBHCs and SLHCs. The first phase is preparing for the site visit. This begins with contracting a team leader, assembling the team and conducting the initial orientation of both the team and health center staff. The second phase includes the first site visit. Data collection is conducted through record review, personal interviews, and nonparticipatory observation. Preliminary assessments and recommendations can also be made. In phase three the changes recommended by the team are implemented. Technical assistance and staff training may be needed during this phase. In the fourth phase the team makes a final visit. Any modifications are noted and a final report is prepared for use by the center administrator, sponsor, or funding agency. Appendices A through F include forms for administrative assessment, medical services assessment, psychosocial and/or health education assessment, school staff questionnaire, student interview questionnaire, and training needs assessment.
