Health Sciences Planning.
Nelson, Arthur D.
"How will recent health care trends affect health sciences campus planning?" was the question put forth by Dr. Nelson at the Society of College and University Planners conference, August 12, 1970. He outlined the status of health care in this country, including the financial state of medical affairs, particularly for university health sciences centers and medical schools, and the lack of efforts in reducing common diseases, smoking, highway accidents, and environmental pollution. Recent national trends indicate: (1) pressure for increased manpower output and thus delivery of health services on a team basis, and (2) the consumer having a voice in the development and direction of health education and care facilities. Implications for health sciences campuses are that team teaching and multi-disciplinary teaching will be more fully utilized, emphasis will be placed on economy of operation, and hospitals and other care facilities must become self-supporting.
