THE FEASIBILITY OF A SYSTEMATIC STUDY OF MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS AND EDUCATION AND TRAINING PROGRAMS OF SELECTED HEALTH OCCUPATIONS.
POLLIARD, FORBES W.
TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF A STUDY, MEETINGS WERE HELD WITH GROUPS INCLUDING PATHOLOGISTS, RADIOLOGISTS, AND COMMUNITY HEALTH AND EDUCATIONAL LEADERS, 30 ADDITIONAL PERSONS CONCERNED WITH HEALTH SERVICES AND EDUCATION WERE INTERVIEWED, DISCUSSIONS WERE HELD WITH OTHER GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS INTERESTED IN HEALTH MANPOWER RESEARCH AND PLANNING, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF RELATED MATERIALS WAS COMPILED. THE MAJORITY OF THE INDIVIDUALS INTERVIEWED REACTED VERY POSITIVELY TO THE PROPOSED COMPREHENSIVE STUDY ALTHOUGH SOME EXPRESSED CONCERN REGARDING ITS SCOPE, ITS TIME REQUIREMENT, AND ITS RELATION TO EXISTING CONDITIONS IN THE HEALTH FIELD. THERE WAS GENERAL AGREEMENT THAT THERE ARE IDENTIFIABLE SHORTAGES OF CERTAIN TYPES OF PERSONNEL. A GENERAL PLAN WAS EVOLVED FOR A 64-MONTH COMPREHENSIVE STUDY TO MEET PRESENT AND PROJECTED HEALTH MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS. THE FOUR PHASES OF THE PLAN WILL CONSIST OF THE FOLLOWING TASKS--(1) DEVELOP A DETAILED WORK PLAN, (2) DETERMINE PRESENT AND FUTURE HEALTH SERVICE REQUIREMENTS, (3) DETERMINE THE PRESENT AND ESTIMATED FUTURE SUPPLY ON THE BASIS OF OUTPUT OF EXISTING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, (4) ANALYZE SHORT-TERM NEEDS FOR SELECTED OCCUPATIONS, (5) IDENTIFY THE TASKS PERFORMED BY HEALTH SERVICE PERSONNEL, (6) ARRANGE THE TASKS ACCORDING TO LEVELS OF KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL AND IDENTIFY NEW, RESTRUCTURED, OR UNCHANGED OCCUPATIONS, (7) ESTIMATE MANPOWER NEEDS, (8) DEVELOP AN EDUCATIONAL PLAN, (9) CONDUCT PILOT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, (10) EVALUATE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND DEVELOP A MECHANISM FOR CONTINUING EVALUATION, AND (11) PREPARE AND DISSEMINATE AN ANALYSIS OF THE COMPREHENSIVE STUDY.
