Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1984 
86 p. 

Designed to simplify the search for federal government resources on maternal and child health, this guide was prepared for use by health professionals, educators, administrators, and the general public. It describes over 250 print and nonprint (posters, audiovisuals) resources in prenatal, infant, child, and adolescent health. The guide is divided into three sections: (1) maternal and child health; (2) infant, child, and adolescent health; and (3) appendix. Resources are grouped by topic and audience and are listed alphabetically by title within each topical category. Each entry includes information on price and source and a brief annotation. Some materials are available in Spanish. The section on maternal and child health includes materials on women's health, prenatal care, high-risk pregnancies/genetics, and adolescent pregnancy. The section on infant, child, and adolescent health covers the topics of parenting/child development, children with special needs, childhood illness, sudden infant death syndrome, nutrition, day care, child abuse, accident prevention, dental health, adolescent health, assessment and screening of children, and morbidity/mortality. The appendix includes alphabetical indexes by title and by subject; complete ordering information; and lists of important state, regional, and federal contacts in maternal and child health. Also included is a list of Federal Health Information Centers that may provide additional information on particular topics. (CB)
