Fostering the Growing Need to Learn: Designs for the Continuing Education of Health Manpower. Part One, Volume One.
Syracuse Univ., NY.
This publication is one of four parts of the Project Continuing Education for Health Manpower performed by Syracuse University for the Regional Medical Programs Service. Continuing education is defined as systematic efforts to acquire, maintain, and develop the abilities, skills, knowledge, and attitudes of persons already engaged in providing health care so that they can do their jobs or fill their roles better. This part is intended to aid planners and decision-makers who are responsible for health care and health care delivery. Volume one reports on the project and includes five monographic chapters dealing with the educational process in adult learning and with large social contexts. (Volume two has five more chapters.) The chapters cover a model of continuing education as a problem-solving strategy for health manpower by Alexander N. Charters and R. J. Blakely; life-long self-directed education by Alan B. Knox; the process of planning continuing education programs for health manpower by Dorothy J. Hutchinson; the provision of inservice education for health manpower by Gary Dickinson and Coolie Verner; and the relationship of priorities and data bases to continuing education by Daniel S. Fleisher. Four key relationships are noted in the introduction which fit the chapters together. (MS)
