This volume of essays, like the first in the series, examines trends in the educational programs for the many related, but traditionally separate, allied health professions. With the phenomenal growth of these fields and the rapidly changing requirements of available technology, educators and counselors alike are in constant need of the kind of up-to-date information offered in these essays. Areas covered in this volume include anesthesia assistance, medical records administration, environmental health, mental health, physical therapy, and health services administration.. In addition there are general essays on such topics as clinical education of allied health professionals and the setting of standards for licensing and certification.
"Clarifies educational problems that are common to all health professions and lends immediacy to what we know but find hard to program -- that the alliance of health professions increases the effectiveness of individual professions as well as the effectiveness of the entire health services field." -- American Journal of Occupational Therapy
