An Education and Development Program for Michigan's State Health Planning Advisory Council.
Michigan State Office of Health and Medical Affairs, Lansing.
The report describes a Federally supported education and development program conducted during the 1973-74 fiscal year for members of the Michigan State Health Planning Advisory Council. The program sought to increase: (1) the council members' awareness of and insight into the comprehensive health planning process, (2) their knowledge of the health care system, and (3) the ability and competency of the council as a planning group, thereby to increase their effectiveness in producing a State health policy. The evaluation of the program was aimed at discovering what happened to and for the Advisory Council and its members as a consequence of the educational effort. Lengthy discussion of findings from questionnaires, observations, and interviews indicates that the educational processes were generally successful, particularly in relation to relationships and dynamics within the group. Implications, based on council member testimony, are outlined. About 100 pages of appended materials include the evaluation instruments and sample project materials. (BP)
