This study compares the knowledge and attitudes of four groups of women within the menopausal phase, 40 to 60 years of age. Public health nurses (PHNs) and women without health training (WWHTs) were studied in both Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica. The study was done during December 1989 and March 1990 using an original questionnaire to collect the data. The findings, based on the data collected from 88 respondents in Jamaica and 90 in Trinidad, showed that women were well aware of the term "menopause" but were not fully knowledgeable of its cause and effects. It also showed that both groups of women in both countries knew most of the symptoms of menopause and were conscious that certain conditions arising at the onset of menopause presented problems to the well being and health of women. The study further showed that while PHNs knew more of the technical facts of menopause, their general knowledge and understanding of the condition was not greater than that of WWHTs. In both groups, actual experience of menopause indicated more knowledge and a better understanding of the conditions. The study suggests the need for:- (a) special attention to be given to the menopause as an important aspect of the development of women; (b) the training and retraining of medical personnel; (c) the organization of clinics and further research in specific areas that have an impact on the lives of those experiencing menopause. The propagation of counselling programmes, and educational activities aimed to raise consciousness and alleviate problems, have been identified (AU)

A research project funded by the Commonwealth Caribbean Medical Research Council (CCMRC) began in February 1987, to study aspects of the situation in connection with the 508 community health aides employed in the Government Service of Jamaica. This report deals specifically with the role of supervisors (public health nurses and midwives) in relation to community health aides (CHAs) employed in the government primary health care service, Jamaica. There were 77 supervisors interviewed, and questionnaires were returned from all four administrative health areas in Jamaica. The supervisors reported that they could supervise more CHAs in the community setting than in the clinic setting alone. In-service training was an integral part of CHA programme, and there was regular evaluation of the CHAs, with at least an annual evaluation in keeping with the policy of the agency. Resource persons from other sectors assist in continuing education programmes for the CHAs. The study outlines the main weaknesses and the strengths of the community health aide programme, and highlights the fact that CHA is a valuable member of the health team and does contribute significantly to primary health care (AU)

This dissertation examines the principles on which the public administrative system in Jamaica has been structured, and the impact which application of these principles has on the management process of planning, organizing and controlling in the nursing service which is administered by the Ministry of Health. The view taken in the analysis is that the structures and processes which have been influenced by the classical theories of management are inadequate for the purpose of management of human resources in underdeveloped countries such as Jamaica: that the assumptions on which the classical models of "authority structure: decision-making, leadership styles, communication patterns"; "the system of reward", and "the management conflict" are premised do not have generalized applicability in underdeveloped societies nor among all categories of employees in a public administrative/management system. The study critically examines the effects of these structural variables on the motivation and morale of nurses and develops a paradigm for a public administrative structure which is more relevant to management needs in a developing country (AU)

It is noted that there are inadequacies in distribution of maternal / child health clinics in this parish and where they exist the general quality of the facilities leave much to be desired. In addition it is thought that the attendance of mothers at clinic is not regular enough to be of full benefit to themselves and their unborn children. The attendance of children at child health clinics is also unsatisfactory. Nurses in the parish feel that a health education programme would be of benefit to the population as well as general improvements in the facilities. (AU)
