Development and Demonstration of an Inductive Method of Health Education Needs Assessment in a Geographic Area of North Carolina.
Porter, Gordon William
This doctoral dissertation presents and demonstrates an inductive model used in the Albemarle Region (State Planning Region R), a 10-county area of North Carolina, for determining health occupations education needs and resources. Data were collected from over 1200 area health personnel utilizing three basic types of instruments which were developed specifically for the study: One for each of several health agencies, one for health professionals, and one for health workers. Information sought included the identification of health education programs and resources (both current and planned), the identification of perceived manpower shortages in health fields, and the identification of perceived inservice and continuing health education needs of health professionals and other health workers according to an established priority. Although the data analyses involved only the health education needs of the Albermarle Region, implications are given for applications of the procedure for determining educational needs in other occupational areas. Appendixes include background information on area health education systems, analysis of the reported needs, and copies of seven instruments which were employed during the study. (DE)
