Education of Health Service Administrators in an Interdisciplinary Model. Position Paper. Revised Edition.
Elder, Jerry O.; And Others
Graduate education of administrators for mental retardation and developmental disability programs are defined under the umbrella of Health Services Administration. These programs have in common the delivery of health care. From the administrative standpoint, the broad area of human services must be brought down to manageable, functional segments, but must also be concerned with all of the human services. A way an administrator can relate to other human services is by first having a thorough knowledge and understanding of the health care delivery system and the role management plays within it. This initial working document deals with graduate education for administrators of mental retardation, development disability programs, and institutions. Included is a questionnaire and results that identify major functional areas of responsibilities for administrators. (Author/KE)
