Patterns of Health Care and Education in Sweden.
The organization and functioning of Sweden's government controlled public health and health personnel educational systems are detailed in the report. The functions of the organizations involved in health care delivery are described. The delivery of health care is carried out at the county level. Regional hospitals provide more specialized services. Figures on in-patient and out-patient capacity, costs, and number of health care workers are presented. The organization of Skaraborg county is given as illustrative of welfare and medical services provided. Information collected by the National Center for Statistics and feedback from health personnel and hospitals form the basis for health planning accomplished at the national and regional levels. The educational system is discussed with reference to: (1) requirements for admission to State-run institutions of higher learning, (2) medical education and research at the universities, (3) education of physicians and nurses (detailed in various phases with the use of flow charts), and (4) education of other health personnel and new branches of education. Coordination between agencies involved in educational planning and long-term health planning is pointed out. Finally, the relationship between research and policy planning at various levels is briefly shown. (MS)
