Communication, Cooperation and Coordination in Allied Health Manpower Preparation and Utilization.
Health Careers of Ohio, Columbus.
The Ohio allied health manpower invitational conference was the initial step of a Federally sponsored project to develop and utilize allied health manpower in Ohio, especially the delivery of health care services. Conference participants included college/university educators, administrators of State health agencies, State/Federal governmental representatives, and health care delivery facility representatives. Communication was an integral part of the conference theme. The keynote address was delivered by Dr. J. Warren Perry, State University of New York--Buffalo, who focused on needs, strategies, and a discussion of the team approach. Eight groups of conference participants addressed their thinking to major discussion topics: transference of academic credits, cooperative planning for program approval and accreditation, personnel credentialling, cooperative planning for continuing education, developing innovative programs, recognition of life experience through proficiency skill and academic equivalency tests, a health manpower information bank, and clinical affiliations. Each group made recommendations pertaining to their topic. The report also includes participant reaction questionnaire summary information and minutes of conference evaluation meetings. Half of the document consists of appendixes pertaining to the conference program, conference participants, questionnaire forms and compilation, annual meeting minutes, an article on licensure-certification-accreditation trends, and a summary of changes in Ohio health education programs.
