Services may be delivered within the department, in homes, clinics, schools, and by liaison agreements with other agencies or organizations. These services include assessment of individual, family or community health status; referral to appropriate organizations for treatment; demonstration and teaching of health concepts to individuals and groups; and mobilizing of community resources to provide for continuity of client care between acute and extended care facilities and the home.
