Health Manpower Conference (4th, October 3-4, 1969).
Health Manpower Council of California, Orinda.
The principal address was by Ralph C. Kuhli, entitled "Education of Health Manpower for the 1970's." He called for recruitment of workers into general rather than specific health occupations, development of educational programs for allied medical occupations, organization of a national joint accreditation commission, encouragement of students and employers to prefer AMA-accredited programs, proficiency testing, supported by grant, governmental medical facilities as models, and health maintenance systems. Reports were made to the General Session by the chairman, the immediate past chairman, the executive director, and the treasurer. Seven groups met and presented recommendations concerning health manpower data collection, licensing, education, continuing education, recruitment, screening and placement, utilization, and mental health manpower. Discussion group data is tabulated and participants are listed. (MS)
