Health Manpower Literature. Volume 2, Number 1.
Goldstein, Harold M.; And Others
This publication presents abstracts, statistics, and references drawn from health manpower literature. It is divided into seven sections; the first section provides statistics on (1) estimated employment in selected health occupations that are potentially entry-level, (2) hospital indicators, and (3) percent distribution of personal health care expenditure by type of care and payment source. Section 2 lists sources for health manpower statistics. The third section contains a staff article on regional variations of health care delivery and utilization in the United States. In section 4, five books are abstracted; for example, the first two are "The Hidden Malpractice--How American Medicine Treats Women as Patients and Professionals," by Gena Corea and "Doing Better and Feeling Worse, Health in the United States," edited by John H. Knowles. In the next section seventeen journal articles are abstracted. For example, the first two are "Hospital Unionism and Employment Stability," by Brian Becker and "A Controlled Trial of the Impact of the Family Practice Nurse on Volume, Quality and Cost of Rural Health Services," by Larry W. Chambers, et al. Section 6 lists recent health articles; the final section lists journals searched for health manpower literature. (Volume 1 of this publication is available as ED 143 825.) (CSS)
