Guidelines for Health Occupations Education Programs.
Tomlinson, Robert M.; And Others
These guidelines, drawn from a number of sources, are designed to present in summary and outline form the multiple aspects of establishing and operating educational programs for health occupations which require less than a baccalaureate degree. To assure usefulness to lay persons, educators, practitioners, and others concerned with health occupations, these guidelines review all aspects broadly, are brief enough to assure extensive use, and provide a base and direction for further study. The first chapters describe how the health industry and health workers are influenced by mounting social forces and advancing technology; the growth, needs, and changes in the health field; and the importance of considering each facet of the complex system for the delivery of health services. Subsequent chapters concern (1) the collaborative roles of involved groups, (2) resources and how to identify and develop them, (3) federal-state-local relationships, and (4) an outline of a comprehensive elementary to post-high school level program. Listings of planning and funding resources, agencies and organizations, information dissemination sources, and annotated references are appended. (Author/SB)
