Comprehensive Health Manpower Planning: Demonstration of Research-Conference Procedures for Estimating Health Manpower Requirements and in Evaluating Educational and Training Programs for Selected Health Occupations in Non-Metropolitan Areas. Final Report.
Iowa State Univ. of Science and Technology, Ames. Dept. of Education.
The purpose of this project was to explore the feasibility of developing a comprehensive system for health manpower planning which would involve educators, leaders in health occupations, state officials, and university research personnel. A long range approach was developed in the form of a theoretical model which considered population trends and composition, price of health service, per capita income and distribution, and health insurance and medicare. Working papers presented to a conference of representatives of health occupations and associations included preliminary employment forecasts and an outline intended to serve as the basis of a system of procedures for assessment of requirements, resources, training, and patterns of labor utilization for the various health occupations. The conference outlined in considerable detail a recommendation for the development of a health manpower data center which would operate in close conjunction with training organizations, research departments, health associations, and health service agencies and at the same time, coordinate its work with state health planning agencies. The recommendation served as a basis for a proposed system of comprehensive health manpower planning. (JK)
