Health Services Mobility Study. Final Report (October 1967-March 1972).
City Univ. of New York Research Foundation, NY.
During the first three phases of the Human Services Mobility Study covering the period October 1967 through March 1972, the project concentrated on: (1) the analysis of needs and potentials for upward mobility in the health industry in New York City, (2) the development of a systems-based methodology to create job and curriculum ladders in the health industry, (3) a pilot test of the methodology, and (4) the provision of technical support. The job analysis methodology devised for the project proceeds in stages, beginning with task identification and collection of skill and knowledge data and progressing to clustering tasks into related skill and knowledge hierarchies. Following field testing, the job analysis method was pilot tested in a New York City hospital. This report reviews the project activities accomplished during the first three phases, summarizes the methodology and results of the pilot study, and acts as a guide for the working papers, progress reports, and research reports resulting from the project. Project plans for the future include: (1) collecting task data in a major voluntary hospital and developing job ladders, (2) providing guidance in the use of task data, and (3) developing guidelines for curriculum ladders.
