  • Description:
    The role that local public health nurses will play in Hansen’s disease control programs will depend on a variety of factors. These include the extent of the problem in the area, the health department’s control program, and the attitude of the entire health department staff toward the disease. The history of handling recognized cases in the local area, local facilities for diagnosis, care and follow-up, and the interest and attitudes of local private physicians will also be important factors. The degree of the professional staff’s understanding of the various ramifications of the disease — particularly the impact the diagnosis will have on the patient, the family, and the community — will play an important part in determining the nurses’ functions and effectiveness.
