Analysis and planning for improved distribution of nursing personnel and services : final report by Jo Eleanor Elliott( Book )

4 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of the Analysis and Planning Project was to strengthen the nursing community's ability to analyze and plan for improved distribution of nursing personnel and services. The objectives aimed at (1) developing analytical models and a data base for planning purposes; (2) identifying new approaches to improve the distribution and delivery of care; and (3) increasing the knowledge of and participation by nurses in health planning. A project advisory committee was formed to assist throughout the project. Several task forces were named to work with staff on developing the State Model, to work with staff and the subcontractor on the National Model, and to work with staff in addressing concerns related to data. A Taxonomy Committee on Nursing Practice was formed to develop a system of nomenclature, terminology, and definitions that might eventually be adopted by the entire profession. The Project Executive Committee provided coordination and planning for meeting the objectives of the various activities. Finally, a National Panel of Expert Consultants was convened to project nursing requirements on a national and state-by-state basis five years into the future. The objectives set forth for the project were met by the end of the contract period. (Bm)

Outputs of higher education: their identification, measurement, and evaluation. Papers from a seminar held at Washington, D.C., May 3-5, 1970 by Ben, Ed Lawrence( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the seminar was to find some answers to, and a deeper understanding of the following questions. (1) What is the purpose or are the purposes of higher education? (2) What are the benefits of higher education to the individual and to society? (3) Can the outputs of higher education be named and measured? (4) Where is higher education going, where do we want it to go, and where does it need to go? Several issues were identified: (1) the summons to accountability by students, society, and the legislature; (2) flagging financial support; and (3) higher education's earlier overreaction to short-term needs. The papers in this publication deal generally with the problem of output. Papers by F. E. Balderston and John Vaizey survey the problem. The conceptual analysis of output is dealt with by David G. Brown, C. West Churchman, Alain C. Enthoven, and Kenneth S. Tollett. Some approaches to measurement of output are suggested by Alexander W. Astin, John E. Brandt, Robbin R. Hough, and John P. Miller. A bibliography and a list of participants are included. (Af)

Staff development and continuing education programs for library personnel: guidelines and criteria by Barbara Conroy( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A common dilemma faces libraries of all types--discovering and managing manpower resources effectively. With librarianship increasingly becoming a service-oriented profession, manpower is the most essential resource. Staff development and continuing education offer partial promise of solution, but evidence of the efforts presently underway is not encouraging. The purpose here is to bring together an overview of the essentials for a systematic program of staff development and continuing education of library personnel. These practical guidelines and criteria may have value for those who are interested in developing competent library personnel--themselves or others. This is intended to be a working tool of principles and precepts on which to base sound programs aimed at the development of the manpower resource, the human potential, within the library profession. The need of manpower development programs in many areas of librarianship is great. This tool is one response to that need. Hopefully these guidelines can be utilized in many different situations where they can help those wanting to develop a new program or to reassess one already existing. The guidelines address planning, implementing, and evaluation a manpower development program. (Author/SJ)
