Restructuring Paramedical Occupations: A Case Study. Final Report, Volume I.
Goldstein, Harold M.; Horowitz, Morris A.
To develop and test techniques for easing the shortage of skilled paramedical personnel and to provide career opportunities for the disadvantaged, this study analyzed the job requirements in paramedical occupations at the Cambridge Hospital, with recommendations for improved utilization. Job descriptions were developed from in-depth interviews with supervisors and paramedical personnel. The study found overlapping functions, unnecessary barriers to hiring and upward mobility, and insufficient inservice training. However, efforts were being made to resolve each of these problems. The interview formats are appended. Volume II, which analyzes job functions, is available as VT 014 990. (BH)
