HEALTH OCCUPATIONS EDUCATION CENTERS, REPORT OF A SEMINAR (JULY 11-14, 1966).
NANGLE, GRACE L.
ONE HUNDRED THIRTY-SIX VOCATIONAL EDUCATION SUPERVISORS, ADMINISTRATORS, TEACHERS, REPRESENTATIVES OF PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS, AND STAFF MEMBERS OF THE LABOR DEPARTMENT AND DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, EDUCATION AND WELFARE ATTENDED A NATIONAL SEMINAR DESIGNED TO ASSIST LEADERS IN THE EDUCATIONAL AND HEALTH COMMUNITIES TO CONSIDER THE CONCEPT OF CENTERS FOR HEALTH OCCUPATIONS EDUCATION. THIS APPROACH TO EDUCATION FOR DIVERSE CAREERS IN THE HEALTH SERVICES RECOGNIZES THAT SOME COMMON UNDERSTANDINGS ARE REQUIRED BY ALL HEALTH WORKERS, THAT INTERDISCIPLINARY TEACHING IS POSSIBLE, THAT CENTRALIZED EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES COULD BE AVAILABLE TO ALL THE STUDENTS, AND THAT THE EDUCATIONAL EFFORT COULD BE IN A SETTING WHICH PERCEIVES THE RELATIONSHIP AMONG THE VARIOUS KINDS OF PREPARATION RATHER THAN THE SEPARATENESS OF EACH COURSE. STRUCTURED AROUND PRESENTATIONS BY LEADERS WHO HAD ALREADY BEGUN TO EXPLORE OR ORGANIZE CENTERS, THE PROGRAM INCLUDED DISCUSSION OF THE PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF A CENTER, REGIONAL PLANNING, PUBLIC RELATIONS, RESEARCH, POTENTIALS FOR BETTER TEACHING METHODS, TEACHER TRAINING, AND CONTROL OF PROGRAM QUALITY. DISCUSSION GROUPS RECOMMENDED THE DEVELOPMENT OF HEALTH OCCUPATIONS EDUCATION CENTERS TO PROMOTE EDUCATION IN AN AREA OF GREAT NEED, INCREASE THE PUBLIC'S KNOWLEDGE ABOUT TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, POOL PROFESSIONAL TALENT, AND WELD TOGETHER PROFESSIONAL AND NONPROFESSIONAL INTERESTS. OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS WERE TO DEVELOP GUIDELINES FOR CENTER DEVELOPMENT, DISSEMINATE RESEARCH AND CURRICULUM MATERIALS, AND HOLD BIENNIAL FOLLOWUP MEETINGS. PRESENTATIONS OF CONFERENCE SPEAKERS ARE INCLUDED. (JK)
