Accreditation: A Public Trust. Proceedings of an Allied Health Education Forum (Chicago, Illinois, April 20-22, 1983).
American Medical Association, Chicago, IL.
Proceedings of the Allied Health Education Forum, which aimed to afford an opportunity for mutual exchange between those who accredit and those who are accredited, are presented. The plan for the forum was to be action-oriented and to allow for interchange on topics identified as important to those involved in or interested in allied health accreditation. Participants included allied health deans, hospital administrators, program directors, allied health professional organization officers, accrediting agency representatives, and American Medical Association staff (from the Committee on Allied Health Education and Accreditation--CAHEA). Among the 14 sessions were: "Accreditation: A Public Trust" (William A. Kaplin); "Function and Significance of the Essentials for Accreditation of Allied Health Programs" (Mary Lee Seibert); "The Significance and Function of the Self-Study: A Community College Administrator's View" (Thomas D. Klopfenstein); "Essentials and the Self-Study: A Hospital Perspective" (Allen W. Grubb); "The CAHEA Accreditation Site Visit and Review Process: A Two Year College Perspective" (Gerry Kaminski); "Alternatives to Programmatic Accreditation" (Thomas E. Freeland); and "Alternative Futures for Accreditation: An Organizational Analyst's Perspective" (H. R. Kells). (LB)
