  • Abstract

    The National School Health Services Program Evaluation documents the nature and scope of a wide range of health services provided to school-age children by by nurse practitioners, school health nurses, physicians, and health aides. The information provided by this collection includes: (1) records of communications between educators, health professionals, and parents, (2) the type, severity, and disposition of problems treated at schools (plus referral sources and the types of health care professionals involved), (3) nurse practitioners' findings from medical histories and physical examinations of students, and (4) data on individual health care episodes at the schools, including unresolved problems. Information supplied by a survey of parents of children in participating schools includes data on health care sources and expenses for the child, plus data on specific medical problems and treatment. Basic demographic characteristics such as the sex and race of the child, parents' educational background, and family income are also provided.
