A Plan for Meeting Personnel Needs in Health, Health Related and Adaptive Behavioral Problem Service Areas in Arkansas. Report of Phase III: Manpower Project: Health and Related Services.
Arkansas State Commission on Coordination of Higher Educational Finance, Little Rock.
This report is the last in a three phase series which had as its major objective the development of a comprehensive state plan to meet the manpower needs of Arkansas' approximately 58,000 mentally retarded in the health, health related, and adaptive behavioral problem service areas. Phase I of the series attempted to determine the number of professional and semi-professional personnel needed to provide the services necessary for optimum care; Phase II analyzed the potential of institutions of higher learning in Arkansas to prepare these personnel. Phase III establishes proposals to expand existing programs and to create new ones. Suggestions were derived from plans classified as "not adequate" or "not existing" in the Phase II report. Because of limited financial resources the needed projects were classified in four priority levels: "most urgent", "urgent", "intermedially urgent", and "least urgent". Appendix A lists the consultants and committee members; Appendix B contains the inventories and questionnaires distributed to institutions of higher learning in the state. (AF)
