PITTSBURGH TECHNICAL HEALTH TRAINING INSTITUTE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT. QUARTERLY REPORT, MARCH 15, 1967.
Pittsburgh Board of Public Education, PA.
IN A PROJECT WHOSE GENERAL OBJECTIVE IS TO FILL AN URGENT NEED FOR MORE TRAINED PERSONNEL IN THE HEALTH SERVICE OCCUPATIONS, THE ACTIVITY DESCRIBED IN THIS INTERIM REPORT WAS CONCENTRATED PRIMARILY ON JOB ANALYSIS OF THE SURGICAL TECHNICIAN, PRACTICAL NURSE, AND NURSE AIDE PROGRAMS. SPECIAL ATTENTION WAS GIVEN TO GAINING RELEVANT INFORMATION ON STUDENT CHARACTERISTICS CONSIDERED IMPORTANT FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES. CHECK LISTS WERE DESIGNED TO GET A MEASURE OF CRITICALITY OF TASKS FROM THE REGISTERED NURSE SUPERVISORS AND INFORMATION FROM THE WORKERS IN TERMS OF ACTUALITY AND FREQUENCY OF PERFORMANCE. A THIRD SECTION OF THE CHECKLIST, GIVEN ONLY TO SUPERVISORS, WAS A BEHAVIOR RATING SCALE ON WHICH RATINGS WERE MADE OF THE TECHNICAL SKILLS AND RELEVANT ATTITUDES OF THE WORKERS. THE PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF THESE DATA INDICATED THAT IN MOST INSTANCES THE SUPERVISORS AND THE JOB HOLDERS AGREED ON WHICH TASKS WERE ACCEPTABLE FUNCTIONS FOR THE SPECIFIED OCCUPATION. THE RESULTS ALSO SUGGESTED THAT PARAMEDICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO FIT TASKS PRESENTLY BEING PERFORMED. (GD)
