Colorado Health Occupations Manpower Survey, 1972.
Colorado State Dept. of Employment, Denver. Research and Analysis Section.; Colorado State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education, Denver.
This study was conducted to supply information for vocational education planners concerning the employment needs of the health services industry in Colorado. It should also provide some indication of the demand for trained workers in the occupations surveyed by coordinating expected company expansion and replacement needs with the number to be company-trained and with the output of ongoing and/or new vocational training programs. Some general findings from the survey of health institutions were: (1) There is a need for retraining technical workers, and this training should take place annually, (2) Training programs for registered and licensed practical nurses should reflect the expanding roles of occupations, and (3) Physician's assistant, paramedic bio-medical equipment technician, and medication technician were seen as emerging occupations. Tables reflecting current and projected manpower needs by region and analyses of 42 selected health occupations are included in the report. The survey questionnaire and other study materials are appended. (SB)
