A Human Resource Development Action Plan for the Radiography Program Sponsored by Lincoln Land/St. John's Based on a View of the Radiographer of the Future.
Dowd, Steven B.
The purpose of a practicum was to develop an effective and valid human resource development plan based on a view of the practitioner of the future. The targeted program was one in radiography (radiologic technology) co-sponsored by Lincoln Land Community College and St. John's Hospital (Illinois). A review of the literature was used to establish a view of the practicing radiographer of the year 2000 and beyond. A formative committee, a selected panel of experts in the field, validated this vision. Subsequent development of the human resource plan involved the formulation of seven major assumptions based on four sources: (1) the view of the future radiographer described in the literature review; (2) development of five major goals for the program from the assumptions; (3) integration of these goals with goals from the previous plan, leading to six human resource priorities for the radiography program; and (4) development of an evaluative section to use the plan to improve program effectiveness. This plan was approved by the program advisory committee and validated through a questionnaire administered to a small group of committee members. Recommendations concerned implementation of the plan and annual evaluation. (Appendixes include a list of 63 references, original human resource plan, the integrated human resource plan, and evaluation questionnaire.) (YLB)
