Long Term Care Aide. Course Outline.
This course outline is intended to assist the instructor in the development of a curriculum for a long-term care aide program by specifying one component of the curriculum--the objectives. These objectives, or competencies expected as outcomes for student performance on completion of the program, describe the capabilities an individual must demonstrate in order to meet the expectations for an aide working in both non-profit and proprietary long-term care facilities in British Columbia. Introductory material describes the role of the long-term care aide training. The course outline is organized into seven major competency groups or tracks: provide assistance with meals and nutrition, assist in maintaining a safe and clean environment, provide assistance in activities of daily living, communicate with residents and others, work responsibility, handle emergency situations, promote activity and positive mental health and help meet human needs. Each track is then organized into many different skills. The following information is provided for each skill: objective, criteria (basic standards or indicators of acceptable performance of the objective), and learning tasks (knowledge, skills, and attitudes that help the learner to meet the objective). A skill profile chart is appended. (YLB)
