The Comprehensive Health Assessment.
Eastern Iowa Community Coll. District, Davenport.
This report contains information from a fall 1991 health occupations assessment of 1,021 health-related employers in Eastern Iowa and the Illinois Quad Cities area. Twelve chapters present comprehensive results of all surveys; results of 10 labor market survey instruments developed for chiropractic offices, dentists' offices, emergency medical services, home health care organizations, hospitals, laboratories, long-term health care facilities, physicians' offices/clinics, veterinary offices, and weight control services; and results of another instrument for certified/licensed health professionals. Information is provided from 350 respondents regarding these broad personnel classifications: chiropractic, clinical laboratory, dental, emergency medical, medical records, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, and radiology. Chapters 2-12 are in two parts. The first part discusses target markets, survey design, and data collection, tabulation, and analysis. Results presented in narrative and table formats provide information on number of present full-time and part-time employees, entry-level hourly wage paid to employees in each of the personnel classifications, and immediate and projected employment needs through 1994. Responses regarding emerging trends and educational needs are then provided. The second part of each chapter is the instrument. (YLB)
