Interdisciplinary Training for the Care of the Elderly and Their Families: Curriculum Guide.
Hooyman, Gene, Ed.; Kethley, Alice J., Ed.
This curriculum guide proposes competency areas, goals, and objectives for the interdisciplinary training of health and social service undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students by faculty members responsible for teaching courses about the care of the elderly and their families. Various levels of student involvement are outlined and explained. Six goals are presented which reflect the basic competencies expected of a student who works with the elderly and are concerned with aging, chronic illness, provider-patient relationship, health promotion, professional collaboration, and the provision of health and social services. Objectives for each goal are identified as knowledge, skills, or values. The needs of the chronically impaired elderly are presented as the major foci of these goals and objectives. (NRB)
