Problems and Programs in Continuing Professional Education. Working Paper No. 1.
The role of the professional in society and problems and advantages of professional education are examined. Summarized in the report are some of the literature concerning factors which influence the form and content of continuing education for professionals; and attention is directed to the implications of this literature for program development by the Medical Library Association. The advantages and disadvantages of continuing education programs developed by business and industry, unions, associations, and the federal government are discussed. The writer feels that the most effective agency for coordinating the activities of these various sponsors of continuing education programs is the professional association. (Author/AP)
