Investigation to Produce Guidelines for Health Technology Program Planning.
A study contracted by the Office of Education for the purpose of promoting increased use of 2-year collegiate institutions for the preparation of personnel in the health technologies consisted of the development and dissemination of a set of guidelines. A committee, comprised of junior college administrators, health facility administrators, and national health practitioners, developed a guide which (1) outlines procedures and informational sources to be used in planning health technology programs, (2) defines the roles of junior colleges, health practitioner associations, and health facilities, and (3) indicates cooperatively and individually performed tasks which lend support to the growth of quality education programs in the health technologies. The guide was partially validated by testing the role delineations in large reaction groups and through evaluation by a sample of the participants at a Chicago conference on health education. The guide was determined to be usable and to deal with many recognized problems confronting those who begin health technology programs in junior colleges. Included in the appendixes are bibliographies, excerpts from committee minutes, an names of participants. (DG)
