Milliken, Mary Elizabeth
This document is a summary report of a 3-day conference held in November 1972 by the Health Occupations Teacher Education Program within the Division of Vocational Education of the University of Georgia. The conference focused on an emerging issue in health occupations education, articulation of programs. Basic problems in the health field are job nomenclature and competence specification, manpower planning, and educational planning to provide qualified personnel at all levels. Participants in the conference were leaders in allied health occupations and faculty and staff from four health specialties: dental auxiliaries, clinical laboratory, patient care, and respiratory therapy. The document includes a summary of the group sessions reports and participants' evaluation of the conference. The evaluation forms, conference participants and consultants, daily agenda, and supportive materials are appended. It was recommended that a series of workshops be held on curriculum modifications and that a center be established for the collection and dissemination of materials related to a sequential curriculum in allied health occupations. The conference proceedings and presentations will be issued separately. (MF)
