Nakamoto, June; Verner, Coolie
A review is made of the literature on continuing education in the health professions. After an overview of the study, six chapters cover continuing education in medicine -- physical composition and distribution, participation in continuing education, organization and administration, instructional processes, evaluation, and summary and conclusions. Then follow four chapters on dentistry -- the profession and continuing education, participation, program administration and organization, and a summary. Four chapters on nursing discuss nurse composition and distribution and concern for continuing education, characteristics of the participants, sponsors and programs, administration of the programs, and some sample programs. Four chapters on continuing education in pharmacy are followed by major conclusions of the study. There are references at the end of each section. (Author)
