Technologies of the '80s: Their Impact on Health Occupations.
Jaffe, J. A., Ed.; And Others
This report is one of seven that identify major new and emerging technological advances expected to influence major vocational education program areas and to describe the programmatic implications in terms of skill-knowledge requirements, occupations most directly affected, and the anticipated diffusion rate. Chapter 1 considers technology as process, the relation of technology and productivity, and technology as the arbitrator of work. The first of three sections in chapter 2 presents the procedures used to identify and clarify the most innovative, new, and emerging technologies with implications for vocational education. Brief descriptions of the technologies expected to affect health occupations are included in section 2. Section 3 contains seven essays describing these new and emerging technologies with implications for health occupations: microelectronic monitors and controls in medical care, database systems in patient care, diagnostic imaging, controlled infusion, physiological monitoring, health care delivery systems, and microcomputers and microprocessors. Chapter 3 is an annotated bibliography with citations descriptive of new or emerging technologies, their diffusion, or insights as to their vocational implications. (YLB)
