New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Occupational and Continuing Education.; City Univ. of New York, NY. Inst. for Research and Development in Occupational Education.
A project examined the curriculum in the health occupations program to determine what curriculum changes will be necessary to keep pace with and anticipate advances in health occupations. A statewide Texas health occupations education review committee composed of employers, graduates, educators, a union representative, and representatives from related areas held three committee meetings and one organizational meeting. A total of seventeen reports were presented at these meetings. Report topics included manpower projections for the health occupations; trends in health care delivery and consequences for the health occupations; the determination of health care in the future; the current status and future implications of computer utilization in health delivery systems; alternative futures for auxiliary health personnel; health careers in education in California secondary education, adult education, and regional occupational programs; the future of allied health education in the eighties; health occupations education in New York State; the preparation and role of the licensed practical nurse; competencies needed for a health team member with a secondary school education; competencies needed for dental health assistants in the future; competencies in collaboration and caring; a personnel executive's view of occupations programs, and reactions to committee activities from the field.
