Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The health of 900 children in foster care was assessed through a review of 257 medical charts and an examination of a subsample of 35 children. Although major handicapping conditions among the children were well cared for, prevention, the care of minor conditions and emotional problems, and overall coordination of care were found to be lacking. On the basis of these findings, the authors propose how health care delivery to foster children can be improved.
