New Careers: The Community/Home Health Aide Trainer's Manual.
University Research Corp., Washington, DC. Information Clearinghouse on New Careers.
The manual is designed to be used in training socially disadvantaged persons who have had no previous job experience in the health fields and who may have only a fifth grade reading ability to function as (1) community health aides who present information received from a qualified source in laymen's language and in general assume the "expediter" role as a link between the client and the community's professional health resources, and (2) home health aides who function mainly to provide personal care in the home. The first three chapters introduce the trainer to the program and provide suggestions for presenting and implementing the training program. The fourth chapter outlines a basic curriculum for all health service trainees. The fifth and sixth outline the specialty skill curriculums for home health aides and community health aides respectively. It is expected that the contents will be refined and expanded to meet local needs. (JK)
