Health Education, Health Manpower, and a System (Green Bay, Wisconsin).
Hartman, Gerhard; Toerber, Garry A.
The purpose of this research study was to determine the need/demand totals and characteristics concerning health personnel for Green Bay and eastern Wisconsin; and to stimulate an effective, efficient approach to the problem of supplying and organizing such health personnel. A delineation of the population served by health personnel in the Green Bay area, statistical regression analysis for projecting health manpower requirements, and an inventory to determine the numbers of existing health personnel were carried out. These data, in conjunction with indices of future need/demand patterns, provided the basis for the projection of future health care personnel needs. Conclusions derived from this study were that health team and paramedical personnel training, together with integrated training institution curriculums and health complexes, must assume a greater role in the treatment and care of a patient. The major physician must conserve his professional abilities through his position as team leader. As future health care needs increase, priority should be given to continual recruitment of quality health personnel. Additional research, oriented toward the concept of an appropriate facility team mix, will be needed; and there must be consistency of job description and classification for health personnel. (KP)
