Issues in Health Occupations in Illinois: Recommendations by Employers and Educators.
Dawson-Saunders, Beth; And Others
This paper presents the results of a study designed to meet the goal of assisting health occupations education planners to provide education relevant to the needs of students and employers. The objectives of the study were (1) to determine and clarify major issues and concerns of Illinois health care employers; (2) to determine, with the input of health occupations educators, how educators can address these problems; and (3) to make recommendations, based on educator input, for ways to alleviate employer concerns. Five issues (communication between educational and service institutions; understanding among allied health personnel, nurses, and health practitioners; overspecialization; regional programs; and continuing education) are discussed from the viewpoint of employers; suggestions from educators are reported and, finally, recommendations based on the previous suggestions are provided.
