System Development Corp., Santa Monica, CA.
The report documents the results of a 1967 survey of health professionals in the four-State Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Mountain States Regional Medical Program (MS/RMP). Addressed to health professionals in each of the four States--Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Wyoming--the survey focuses primarily on the characteristics and continuing education needs of the Mountain State health professionals. The disease categories of heart disease, cancer, and stroke are emphasized. Part 1 reviews the major findings of the survey data analysis, providing summary profiles of the following groups: physician, dentist, hospital administrator, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, medical/laboratory technologist, physical therapist, radiologic/X-ray technologist. Part 2 presents the survey design and analysis plan. Part 3, making up the major body of the report, examines each of the professional groups listed above as they relate to: selected personal and professional characteristics, need for continuing education, desired methods and procedures of continuing education, and other factors relevant to continuing education. Statistical findings are discussed and tabulated. Part 4 reports the patient referral patterns and practices of physicians and dentists. Findings and conclusions are discussed along with their implications for immediate and long-range actions. Survey instruments are appended. (MW)
