Manpower Conference on Allied Health Professions Assistants (Buffalo, N.Y., Apr 16-17, 1970).
Husted, Frank L., Ed.; Perry, J. Warren, Ed.
The 73 participants representing 10 health professions, health education at all levels, and federal and state agencies attended a 2-day conference which attempted to reinforce communication among allied health practitioners in the utilization of the allied health assistant in the delivery of health care. Major issue papers, which provided discussion ideas for multi-disciplinary workshops, were: (1) "Health Manpower and the Health Crisis" by K. M. Endicott, (2) "The Assistant: Mobile or Immobile?" by J. W. Perry, (3) "The Assistant's Basic Education" by Sister A. Joachim, (4) "The Need: Who? When? Where?" by L. M. Detmer, and (5) "Certification and Licensure: Blessing or Boondoggle?" by E. E. Leuallen. Needs of selected disciplines were also recognized, and these become the major area of concentration in the panels and disciplinary workshops. Texts of the major papers and workshop notes are included in the report. (SB)
