Engel, C. E., Ed.; Meyrick, R. Ll., Ed.
The proceedings of a conference on television in postgraduate and continuing medical education for general practitioners are presented in this three-part report. Part One contains papers on medical broadcast television which examine the problems of informing the isolated doctor and groups of doctors of new developments; the usefulness and structure of a semantic differential method of program assessment which is completed by doctors; stages in the evolution of an instructional program; the value, methods, and costs of an integrated approach; general features to consider when creating an instructional program; problems involved in showing medical treatments on broadcast television; the problems of communication between specialists and the target audience--general practitioners; and general limitations of medical educational television (such as cost, air time, and publicity). In Part Two papers on recorded television explore the advantages of using Electronic Video Recording (EVR), the technical factors to consider in recording for television, and steps in the process of developing viewer involvement. Part Three contains papers on closed circuit television (CCTV) which detail the uses, costs, and relative merits of single and double camera CCTV, and describe what can be expected of manufacturers and suppliers of television equipment.
