Clinical Laboratory Sciences Discipline Advisory Group Final Report. Kentucky Allied Health Project.
Kentucky Council on Public Higher Education, Frankfort.
Education in the clinical laboratory sciences in Kentucky and articulation within the field are examined, based on the Kentucky Allied Health Project (KAHP), which designed an articulated statewide system to promote entry and exit of personnel at a variety of educational levels. The KAHP model promotes articulation in learning, planning, and resource allocation. Information is presented on the history of the clinical laboratory sciences (CLS) profession, educational programs, accreditation, and regulatory practices. Accomplishments of the CLS Discipline Advisory Group include the following: identifying roles and functions for three levels of CLS practitioners using Bloom's taxonomy; developing objectives at the basic and advanced levels in the areas of hematology, immunohematology, microbiology, immunology, and clinical chemistry/urinalysis; developing a model articulated curriculum; surveying medical laboratory technician students and graduates to determine interest in articulation; developing a CLS brochure for educators; surveying hospitals and private laboratories in Kentucky regarding manpower demand; and negotiating transfer agreements among colleges. The use of the Program Evaluation and Review Technique is also addressed. Various transfer agreements are appended, along with information on the CLS programs offered at Kentucky institutions. (SW)
