The Organization and Continuing Education; A Study of Agency Factors Relating to Attendance and Support of Continuing Education in Public Health in California. A Summary Report.
Carlaw, Raymond W.; And Others
A survey of continuing education of health personnel in Southern and Northern California was made to determine if there were differences in attendance, expressed interests, attitudes of health agency directors, recognition of employee participation, presentation of courses, or in financial support. A random sample was drawn from each area resulting in 25 respondents from Northern California and 18 from Southern California who worked for official or voluntary agencies, or the State Department of Public Health. An openended questionnaire was administered in a one hour interview. Cluster analysis was used to cross check reliability and coding validity. Results are reported in tabular form. It was found that less interest in attending continuing education program was shown in Northern California, less positive support existed in Northern California because of greater consciousness of budgeting and difficulties associated with staff absences; Northern executives were more likely to screen notices of training programs and nominate specific people to attend; and more concern was expressed in the North for agency and program needs, while the South was concerned with personnel development.
