Career Mobility: A Guide for Program Planning in Health Occupations; and Career Mobility Profiles.
American Hospital Association, Chicago, IL.
One means of dealing with manpower problems is to develop career mobility programs which give employees the opportunity to advance, in terms of responsibility and income, to jobs where there are manpower shortages. The material developed in this publication is designed to guide health care institutions, educational institutions, and other interested agencies in planning and operating career mobility programs. Contents include a policy statement from the American Hospital Association, a rationale for career mobility programs, guidelines, which contain considerations and procedures for planning and implementing a program, and a glossary of career mobility terms. Included as an additional resource for planning are descriptions of 15 career mobility programs located in hospitals, neighborhood health centers, and educational institutions. Each description contains a title, location, date of initiation, program purposes, and source of further information. (SB)
