Teaching Strategies for Primary Health Care. A Syllabus.
This book is intended to assist teachers, practitioners, and administrators to develop programs for training nonphysician, primary health care workers in Third World countries. It contains the instructional context of a comprehensive training program, organized into chapters and presented in outline form. Learning strategies follow each section of instructional content. These build on the technical knowledge contained in each discussion, as well as the students' own perceptions and experiences, and relate all these elements to their future roles as primary health care workers. The book is organized in three parts. Part 1 contains a discussion of the social process skills needed by the primary health care worker. It considers the necessary skills and qualities, how they may be acquired, and how they become translated into action. Parts 2 and 3 contain instructional content and associated learning strategies. They address first the health of the community, and then discuss the health of the individual. Topics covered include health education, nutrition, population control, health services, prevention and control of disease, health data, providing care for mothers, children, and adults, and health-related sciences. Appended is a bibliography of relevant materials, with annotations and details of how to obtain them. (KC)
