Professional and Occupational Licensure in the United States

Author: Robert L. Hollings
Publisher: Greenwood Publishing Group
ISBN: 0313304408
Release Date: 1997-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

A sourcebook to be used by policymakers, regulators, licensees, and consumers who wish to gain a better understanding of the regulation of the major professions and occupations within the 50 states. Topics covered include licensing restrictions, board disciplinary activities, and current licensure trends. The limited available literature on the subject of licensure demonstrates that state professional and occupational licensure boards play a critical role in protecting the public from unqualified and unscrupulous practitioners. The primary responsibility of the boards is to protect consumers by ensuring that practitioners meet established criteria for admission, maintain competency, and adhere to ethical and practice standards. Among the major issues explored are the historical development of licensure, licensing restrictions, public participation in licensure board functions, board disciplinary activities, current licensure trends, and other forms of regulation. This book also provides references and brief summaries of other works of interest and identifies the type of regulation the various states employ to monitor members of the major professions and occupations.

Release Date: 1989-01-01
Genre: Medical

With estimates of their numbers ranging from one million to almost four million people, allied health care personnel make up a large part of the health care work force. Yet, they are among the least studied elements of our health care system. This book describes the forces that drive the demand for and the supply of allied health practitioners--forces that include demographic change, health care financing policies, and career choices available to women. Exploring such areas as credentialing systems and the employment market, the study offers a broad range of recommendations for action in both the public and private sectors, so that enough trained people will be in the right place at the right time.

Strategic Health Planning

Author: Allen D. Spiegel
Publisher: Greenwood Publishing Group
ISBN: 089391892X
Release Date: 1991-01
Genre: Health & Fitness

This book is developed around a rational planning process of six steps required to develop a strategic plan for health services. Following an overview chapter that identifies the need for this text and how it differs from previous health planning texts, each succeeding chapter is devoted to one step in the process. Methods and techniques are provided that can help practitioners carry out the steps. Where feasible, the reader learns how to use these methods and how to identify their strengths and weaknesses. In an era of stiff competition among health service agencies and hospitals, practitioners who use the methods described will have a distinct advantage over those administrators who do not. In the fast developing and dynamic field of health care, past experiences are no longer the best barometer of what a health agency ought to do in the future. There is no longer any stability in the health service field. Consequently, program administrators and/or their planning/marketing directors do need a guide to insure they obtain better results from their efforts.
