Abstract

Background and Purpose: For the decades, the number of the foreign spouses increases in Taiwan. This study of ”The Sources of Health Care Information for the Foreign Spouses in Taipei City will contribute the development of policy of health care and medical education for the foreign spouses. The goal of the study is to understand how the foreign spouses get the health education information and what the most available way is.
Methods: The study group is registered in the database of Ministry of the Interior till December 2005. The foreign spouses who live in Taipei City and come from Mainland China, Vietnam and Indonesia are the target group. We used the stratified randomized sampling based on the proportion of foreign spouses in the 12 districts area. The public nurses made the home visit with the structure questionnaires. Depending on the different service items and the policy implement schedules; the objects were divided into four categories.
Results: There is no significant different between the foreign spouses from Vietnam and Indonesia among the demographic data, the recognition, attitude and the resources of the health education and the availability of the medical information. There is significant different in the Mainland China group (p<0.01). The health care education service cannot meet their need. There are three reasons: first, the communication barriers. The foreign spouses have difficulties in language and communication and literature. Second, the consulting resources are insufficient. The foreign spouses did not know how to use the manual, and who can help. Third, the contents of the instrument can not meet their need. The most favorite resources among the foreign spouses are the eugenic handbook and the home visit from the public nurses.
Discussion The department of health can inform the foreign spouses by mailing and the home visit from the public nurses. The foreign spouses coming from different countries need various medical education and resources. And we should pay much attention to the problems of the communication.
