Abstract

Children, particularly adolescents, have unique health care needs and experience frequent barriers to receiving needed medical care. The expansion of school-based health services since the early 1970s is one recent development in the area of health services delivery that is a specific response to facilitate meeting the medical needs of youth. Limited resources, shrinking budgets, demographic and behavioral changes among our nation's youth, and recent trends toward managed care all demand innovative strategies by school-based health services if they are to ensure their viability in providing adequate health care to children and adolescents. This article reviews the recently published literature regarding the role of school-based health centers as sites providing primary care services to children and adolescents. In addition, it addresses recent efforts to develop strategies that school-based health centers may need to consider in order to adapt and survive within the environment of health care reform and managed care.
