Master Facilities Inventory: A Study of Health Manpower Training Resources. Jackson and Clay Counties, Missouri--1967.
Zimmerman, T. F.; Crnic, Carol A.
The objective of this inventory was to provide basic data concerning the effectiveness of new health manpower training programs for comparison with future studies and documented information, for planning purposes. It was necessary to define the components of the health manpower training network and to identify individuals responsible for its operation. A personal interview method of data-collection was used, loosely based upon a questionnaire. The Kansas City General Hopsital and Medical Center was the site for pilot-testing the interview procedure. Indicated refinements were made; then all institutions in Jackson and Clay Counties providing health manpower training programs were contacted. The private sector of health manpower utilization was represented by a random sampling of private physicians in the Greater Kansas City Area to determine the types of personnel and training required for employment in that sector. The study determined that 55 health manpower training programs in 21 health occupations were operating at 53 0/0 of their projected capacity. Five recommendations were offered to improve the situation. (Tables and six appendixes, including a sample questionnaire, are provided.) (AG)
