Strategy and Tactics for Program Preparation. Research Memorandum Number Three.
Finn, James D.; And Others
Audiovisual programs designed to bring current developments in medicine to general practitioners individually are also meant to shape their subsequent behavior. There are many problems in preparing these programs, most of them involved with the fact that the medical consultant and the educational production group must work interdependently. The medical consultant must transmit hard-won and complex knowledge rapidly to the programing staff who will then transmute it into programs. The relationship between the two is crucial to the project, and this report details a recommended order of the tactics which specify the relationship. This includes initial contact by the administration with the medical consultant, the initial work by him, initial writing conference with him, writing by a programer of the content outline and script, preparation by the medical consultant of the content essay, final script preparation by a programer or producer, and production of visuals by the producer. Then the skeleton program, consisting of slides, in-house tape, program book, and test, is validated, approved, put into physical production, and packaged. Programs are then mailed to sample. Attachments A, B, C, and D are comprised of forms, a medical essay, and a program script. (GO)
