Inactive Health Personnel Project in New Hampshire. Final Report.
New Hampshire Health Careers Council, Concord.
With the goal of more efficient utilization of existing health manpowers in New Hampshire, data were gathered on inactive medical personnel, and the feasibility of various methods of refresher training was explored. Because of New Hampshire's intrinsic characteristics of climate and scattered population and the scarcity of qualified instructors, plans have been made to broadcast on educational television a fifteen part series, "Return to Nursing," developed at Russell Sage College. This will be followed by a concentrated period of clinical experience for nurses. Funding is being sought. The need for reactivating auxiliary dental personnel was assessed by surveying dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants. It is felt that refresher training will best be accomplished on-the-job or through the school for Dental Hygienists to be opened soon. Programs for reactivation of medical technologists and occupational therapists were found to be unnecessary. Many potential health workers cite inadequate salaries, inappropriate benefits, and frustrating working conditions as reasons for finding other employment. The appendixes contain copies of form letters and questionnaires used in this study. (MS)
