It provides allied health educators, administrators, counselors, and students with: (1) information on the development of allied health education and accreditation and on current concerns; (2) a description of the general accreditation process and of the specific process for individual occupations; (3) occupational program information; (4) specific information on accredited educational programs; (5) the standards and processes for developing educational programs qualified for accreditation; (6) procedures concerning education and accreditation; and (7) additional information related to allied health education and accreditation. Sections cover four major areas: accreditation history and allied health issues; accreditation; occupational program information (organized in alphabetical order by profession); and computer program information. Statistical tables provide basic information for each occupation and also provide a basis for comparison between and among professions. Appendix A contains guidelines for each occupation.
