National Assessment of Clinical Education of Allied Health Manpower: Volume III, Monographs.
Booz Allen and Hamilton, Inc., Washington, DC.
The document is the third volume of a four-part report of a study conducted to evaluate and assess the state of allied health manpower clinical education and training. Four monographs focus on important issues related to clinical education as a major factor in the training of allied health manpower. In "A Critical Analysis of Methods of Ensuring Quality in Clinical Education of Allied Health Manpower," Richard G. Allen examines the educational process and how it affects the quality of the education of allied health manpower. "Feasibility of Internship Programs as an Adjunct to Clinical Education of Allied Health Manpower," by Margaret Harty, presents three alternative patterns for clinical learning which would facilitate the preparation of allied health manpower for actual practice. In "The Role of Simulation as an Adjunct to Clinical Training of Allied Health Manpower," Thomas G. Sheller and Carol J. Peterson discuss the advantages and disadvantages of simulation and suggests some applications to clinical education. In the concluding paper, "Relationships Between Nursing and Allied Health," Eileen Flynn discusses the differences and commonalities that exist between the roles of technologists and professionals and suggests a cooperative form of clinical internship for students in nursing and allied health.
