Education and Training of Nurse Teachers and Managers with Special Regard to Primary Health Care. Technical Report Series 708.
World Health Organization, Geneva (Switzerland).
A 1983 committee report is presented of the World Health Organization Expert Committee on the Education and Training of Nurse Teachers and Managers with Special Regard to Primary Health Care. After discussing the changing context of health care and trends in primary health care, changes required in education and training in health systems based on the primary health care approach are addressed, including the role of nursing personnel. The current preparation of nurse teachers and managers in post-basic education programs is examined, with attention to facilities and teaching/learning resources; students, teachers, and administrators; and curriculum. In addition to identifying competencies and objectives of post-basic education, the implementation and evaluation of programs are considered. Areas for change and factors influencing the process of change are discussed, including health personnel policy, attitudes and values, leadership, teachers and students in post-basic schools, the location of educational programs, resources and administrative support, research, and nurses as agents of change. Brief case studies for Senegal and Thailand are included. (SW)
