Assisting with Nutritional Needs. Instructor's Guide, Option A, [and] Option B.
Merrill, Beverley P.
This packet contains an instructor's guide and student materials for a competency-based course on assisting with patient nutritional needs for practical nursing students in Florida. The program is designed to teach students to help feed patients, to assess their nutritional needs, and to monitor their intake of food and fluids. The instructor's guide contains information to help the instructor present the course, including introducing the unit to the students, enrichment, student assessment, and choosing optional methods (A or B) of presenting the course. The instructor's guide also contains a glossary, a bibliography, and appendixes which explain how to make materials called for in the course activities, along with blank forms. The student materials are contained in two separate optional formats. Both present the same competency to be developed, using the same introduction, objectives, pretest, posttest, final exam, and performance checklists. Student instructions, resources, and learning activities are presented differently. One option is designed for programs still using the more conventional lecture method of instruction. This option, Option A, presents a step toward individualizing instruction. The second option, Option B, is designed to allow programs already involved and also those anticipating involvement in individualized instruction to move toward maximum individualization of their curriculum.
