Development of Articulation Models for Allied Health Statewide Planning.
Lang, Joanne; And Others
Under the auspices of the Kentucky Council on Higher Education and with the aim of delineating issues in allied health education and making recommendations for alleviating the issues, an in-depth, two-year study was completed in 1975. The primary recommendations pertained to the development of a statewide plan for allied health education that would result in an articulated statewide system permitting entry and exit of prepared personnel at a variety of levels, and improve interinstitutional efforts to share resources. In 1978 the Council was awarded a grant from the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare to develop an articulated system of allied health education in six disciplinary clusters: clinical laboratory sciences, dental auxiliaries, nutrition/dietetics, rehabilitation therapy, radiological science, and respiratory therapy programs. All levels of programs within each cluster that exist in Kentucky are included in the system. The primary goal for each discipline advisory group is to develop a curriculum design for articulation within each level and each type of program in their cluster. A curriculum-based planning model was developed to accomplish this. Implementation will be planned in cooperation with the educational institutions providing input into the project. (Author/MSE)
