Health Occupations Education. Survey of Critical Issues.
American Vocational Association, Washington, DC. Health Occupations Education Div.
A survey of the members of the American Vocational Association-Health Occupations Education (AVA-HOE) was conducted to identify critical issues concerning health occupations, establish the order of priority of these issues, and determine a position regarding each issue that was reflective of the opinion of the AVA-HOE members. Each member of the AVA-HOE Critical Issues Committee served as a representative of the region in which he/she served and was given the responsibility of contacting a key person in each state in the assigned region. These key persons canvassed the AVA-HOE members of the states using an opinionnaire dealing with twenty-two major topics. The results of the survey indicated that levels of patient care, national and state leadership, accreditation and certification, program development, and teacher education were ranked as the top five issues across the nation. (The survey results by region and state are included in this report.) (JH)
