Task Performance for Selected Allied Health Occupations. Allied Health Professions Project.
Byers, Bruce B.; Nowak, Frank E.
This document is an interim report of EPI's (Educational Projects Incorporated) Allied Health Project. The goal of the project is defined as assisting in the development of a comprehensive and viable system for the education and training of competent technicians in the allied health field. The approach used in this study is one of task definition, which addresses the development of curriculum from the standpoint of what an individual is expected to perform when employed in a specific occupation. The initial functional analysis used task inventories for the designated selected occupational areas as developed by the University of California at Los Angeles. Respondents were selected for this EPI study and surveys distributed. The major portion of this document is divided into three sections, each for a particular occupation, in which the study results are presented. The three occupations are nursing, respiratory care, and radiology. Tables with results from the survey, giving information on various tasks polled, are interspersed throughout the text. (JA)
