The Future of Allied Health Education. New Alliances for the 1980s. The Jossey-Bass Series in Higher Education.
Serving as a comprehensive reference on all aspects of allied health education and service, this report presents the National Commission on Allied Health Education's recommendations. The recommendations focus on six major areas: strengthening alliances in service and education, determining appropriate content and level of educational programs, improving clinical education, building the capability for leadership and innovation, providing or planning and administration without waste, and supplying adequate funding for allied health education. Chapters examine: allied health in the present and future; future direction for allied health education; educational alliances; and scope and diversity of allied health education. Tables and figures offer such information as number of collegiate institutions with allied health programs, occupations within the field, and hospital-based allied programs. Appendices include the methodology used in the study, the American Society of Allied Health Professions glossary, and the Carnegie Classification of Higher Education Institutions. Several recommendations are offered such as increased funding on all government levels in the allied health area, improving continuing education programs, and constant monitoring of present programs for quality control. An index and references are provided. (LC)
