The Allied Health Professions Personnel Training Act of 1966, as Amended. Report to the President and the Congress.
National Institutes of Health (DHEW), Bethesda, MD. Div. of Allied Health Manpower.
The Allied Health Professions Personnel Training Act of 1966 as amended by Title III of the Health Manpower Act of 1968 requires the Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare to submit a report on the administration of the act, an appraisal of programs in terms of their adequacy to meet needs, and recommendations for the future. This document is that report. Sources of information include: the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, other federal agencies, professional associations, and educational institutions. Deliberations of the National Advisory Allied Health Professions Council are also reflected. The major chapters treat: (1) the provisions and implementation of the Act and the accomplishments of grant programs, (2) allied health manpower supply and requirements in the medical, dental, and environmental health areas, and (3) allied health manpower education and training needs. A general conclusion is the need to bring together the many skills essential to the maintenance of health in an effective manner, and the dependence of this effectiveness upon quality education and training. Particular attention is called to the development of a broad range of allied health occupations. The major recommendation is for a 1-year extension of the Act. (JK)
