Summary

Minimal health services which migrant children should receive are detailed in this manual for schools participating in the Pennsylvania Migrant Education Program. Among the 10 health services defined are identification of existing health problems, medical examinations/treatment, immunizations and health education instruction. Stating that the health service component goal should provide the fullest educational opportunity by minimizing absence due to health problems, the manual lists ways to achieve this goal (e.g., screening for health problems, arranging necessary transportation, and scheduling immunizations and examinations). It also outlines recommended procedures for efficient interchange of information between the migrant programs and the schools. Particular emphasis is given to the Migrant Student Record Transfer System (MSRTS) and the kinds of data it contains. The Migrant Student Medical Record Transfer Form, its utilization, and the procedure for entering information on the form are explained. The manual also describes medical computer data procedures and lists MSRTS inservice procedures for school nurses. A health problem code table and sample medical forms are also included. (DS)
