Health Manpower in South Carolina. Report of the Task Force on Health Manpower.
South Carolina State Advisory Council for Comprehensive Health Planning, Columbia.
The factors contributing to the need for an increasing ratio of health workers to total manpower in South Carolina are: demand for more and better health services, augmented by government support; technological advances in medical science; new organization patterns in medical care; rapid increase in population; development of new kinds of community facilities for outpatient care; and the use of increasing numbers of health personnel in diverse settings. The data were derived from available reports, related literature, and surveys. Recommendations were made dealing with the reorganization of responsibility of health personnel in administrative and managerial positions, the development of federal and local government incentives, the restructuring of salary scales, the elimination of outmoded medical jobs, the recruitment of more personnel through better job descriptions, the planning of new and extensive training programs including summer jobs, the cooperation of curriculum planners, and the initiation of programs for paramedical personnel. (Statistics, correspondence, and a list of certification authorities are included.) (KP)
