Health and Behavioral/Social Sciences in Health Services Administration Education. Final Report.
Association of Univ. Programs in Health Administration, Washington, DC.
This final report summarizes a nationwide effort to determine appropriate health and behavioral sciences curricula components for graduate programs in health administration. Chapters 1 through 3 summarize the background, methodology, and findings of the project. Chapter 4 presents an analysis of health sciences and behavioral/social science curricula in sixty-five graduate programs. Chapters 5 through 8 outline recommended content components for studies in health sciences, behavioral sciences, and the environment of health services organizations. (Content components--building blocks of teaching/learning/student contact time--replace courses and disciplines as basic units of curriculum.) Each component outline is divided into description and justification, competency items/learning objectives, educational strategies, learning resources, and effect of contingency variables; however, not all of the areas of division are included in every outline. Chapters 9 through 12 are appendixes and include literature abstracts in health and behavioral sciences education and descriptions of the project's commissioned and position papers. (Bibliographies and learning resources are appended to several of the chapters.) (VB)
