Human Resource Development Planning Based on Accreditation Guidelines.
Dowd, Steven B.
This paper presents a preliminary human resource development plan for the radiography program sponsored by Lincoln Land Community College (Illinois). The plan is based on the "Essentials and Guidelines of an Accredited Program for the Radiographer," initially adopted in 1944, and most recently revised in 1990, it involves the integration of external forces such as accreditation, demographics, and future trends with the internal human resources of the college. Items relevant to human resources are discussed in terms of outcome assessment. Following a review of the "Essentials and Guidelines" and a description of how they have an impact on the human resource development of a community college sponsoring a radiography program, the process is described. It consists of formulating goals based on institutional purpose, developing procedures upon which to evaluate these institutional goals, and indicating how these evaluations will be used to improve or maintain institutional effectiveness. Groff's (1990) description of human resource development in educational institutions as recruitment, supervision, staff development, and evaluation of personnel is used as an operational definition. This model of the use of human resource planning based on accreditation guidelines for a specific program (radiography) can be used with other programs that require specific accreditation in community colleges, such as nursing, respiratory therapy, medical laboratory technology, and child care services.
