Gerontology: Foundations for Practitioners. Report on the Gerontological Consultation at Westminster College (London, Ontario, March 29, 1984).
Harley, Ann; And Others
A group of 72 professionals from the field of gerontology attended a consultation designed to articulate the learning and professional development needs of those who work with elderly persons. During the consultation, a series of three small group discussions were held. These discussions indicated that continuing education courses and professional development programs in the field of gerontology are needed for a wide range of professionals who work in the capacity of local caregivers to senior citizens. Particularly needed is a gerontological foundation that could foster interagency, interpersonal, and intergenerational communication among those involved in work in the field of gerontology. (This report contains a summary of the recommendations set forth at the consultation, overviews of the objectives and results of the two group discussions, a list of those comments made during the discussions that pertain to an information exchange or gerontological foundation, and a list of questions and raw data from the evaluation of the consultation and a subsequent analysis of those comments.)
