The Characteristic Adult Education Problems and Needs of Seven Indiana State Mental Hospitals: A Diagnostic Study.
Grubb, Allen William
This study examined characteristic adult educational problems and needs concerning employee employer, employee patient, and employee public relationships as perceived by key personnel in seven state hospitals for adult psychiatric patients. A special three part rating schedule was administered to 11 key personnel in each hospital. Data from Parts 1 and 2 were used to test hypotheses relating perceived problems and needs to occupational differences. Responses to items in Part 3 were used diagnostically to translate perceptions into real educational needs on which to base planning for continuing education. Major findings were that employees of six of the seven hospitals saw at least one problem area or deficient hospital condition; that no significant differences existed between occupational groups in their view of the severity of problems or educational needs; and that there were significant differences between hospitals as to problems perceived, but not on perceived educational needs.
