Health Auxiliary Training, Instructor's Guide.
This guide for the training of home health aides is a compilation of lecture outlines supplemented by a suggested class schedule for the use of the program director in planning the overall program and preparing for the classes he is to teach. Developed by the Training Branch of the Division of Indian Health in cooperation with the Office of Economic Opportunity, the Oglala Sioux Tribe, and other interested individuals, the purpose of the program was to equip aides drawn from the reservation population to augment the Division's community health activities on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Units include: (1) Introduction, (2) Anatomy and Physiology, (3) Epidemiology, (4) Basic Home Nursing and Home Health Practice, (5) Environmental Health, (6) Home Management, (7) Community Resources, (8) Accident Prevention, (9) Education Techniques, and (10) Human Relations. Quizzes and lists of suggested references and teaching aids follow each unit. The classroom phase of the training was conducted in two sessions of twelve weeks each with twelve aides attending each session followed by four months of on-the-job training. Personnel qualified to handle each subject area are suggested. (JK)
