Maricopa Commission on Health Care Education Reform. (Task Force 6). The Maricopa/Arizona Dialogue: Impact/Implications of Workforce Regulation on Plans for the Health Care Integrated Educational System.
Maricopa County Community Coll. District, Phoenix, AZ. Office of Educational Development.
This report describes the accomplishments and current status of the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) in Arizona Commission on Health Care Education Reform (HCER). In response to the changing needs of the health care fields, the District created the HCER commission in January 1996 to evaluate and develop health care education. The Commission implemented the Health Care Integrated Educational System (HCIES). After receipt of a State Initiatives Support Grant, a summit was held in April 1997 to discuss issues identified by the Commission. Representatives included community colleges, universities, health care providers, regulatory agencies, and legislators. As a result of the summit, a statewide Task Force on Workforce Regulation for health care was created. The goals of the Task Force are: (1) to expand the dialogue regarding the reform of health care education programs through discussion about issues related to the impact of workforce regulations on the HCIES; and (2) to develop plans to change health care workforce regulations to allow implementation of the HCIES. The Commission's work has been presented formally in various settings and has generated much interest. The work initially supported by the grant will continue through the Arizona Task Force of Workforce Regulation. (RDG)
