Washington State Dept. of Social and Health Services, Olympia.; Washington State Planning and Community Affairs Agency, Olympia.
The stated objective of this guide is to provide a quantitative description of the current supply of health manpower in the State of Washington. To do so, two methods of data collecting are used, with explanations for each. Precautions for interpreting their data are noted. The major portion (152 of 180 pages) of the guide lists information on licensing regulations, professional functions, and educational prerequisites, and tabulated quantitative data for these occupations: chiropractors, dental hygienists, dentists, dietitians and nutritionists, dispensing opticians, drugless therapeutics, licensed practical nurses, nursing home administrators, optometry, doctors of osteopathy, pharmacists, physical therapists, physician-surgeons, podiatrists, psychologists, registered nurses, sanipractors, sanitarians, and veterinarians. A brief bibliography is provided for each category. The guide concludes with a thirteen page section providing information concerning the types and location of health programs available in Washington. (AG)
