A Diagnostic Procedural Model for Identifying Real Educational Needs.
Londoner, Carroll
This study evaluated educational problems and needs in the administrative management council of Bloomington Hospital, Bloomington, Indiana, in order to help produce a more effective task group within the hospital's institutional framework. Over a seven week period, the investigator observed department heads in their weekly conferences by means of the Bales Interaction Analysis Sheet (verbal participation) and a specially developed process report form for evaluating group structure and processes. The history of the development of this group, indicating various lines of confusion, led the department heads during the collaborative diagnosis to suggest several educational needs. Accordingly, the investigator, as the diagnostician, recommended the setting of an overall hospital philosophy with principles and guidelines for future work; a clarified organizational structure indicating proper lines of authority and responsibility; and some form of participation training in procedures for decision making and problem solving. (A questionnaire and the diagnostic instruments are included.) (LY)
