Methodological Approaches for Determining Health Manpower Supply and Requirements. Volume II. Practical Planning Manual.
Kriesberg, Harriet M.; And Others
This second of a two-volume monograph, which describes and evaluates various methods used to determine present and future health manpower supply and requirements, is intended to contribute to planners' understanding of the state of the art and to the improvement of health manpower planning. The methodologies presented, chosen after a review of the documents identified in the Inventory of Health Manpower Planning Activities of 1973 in the Bureau of Health Manpower, are considered practical with regard to the resources available to state and local health planners. This volume is a practical manual that describes the methodologies step-by-step, including questionnaire samples and selected tables for estimating health manpower supply and requirements. A list of tables and a bibliography are also included. (Volume I provides the analytical perspective including definition of terms, discussion of concepts that underlie the methodological approach, and discussion of the uses and limitations of health manpower statistics within the context of the subject area.)
