Educational Tools for Health Personnel.
Wilbur, Muriel Bliss
This book provides information on the selection of educational tools, methods of presenting them to the public, and modern techniques used by public health educators in working with adults. The author first discusses educational methods, including the learning process, communication, and motivation of adults to act. Establishing effective relationships with people is the subject of Part II. Part III shows how to plan a successful meeting, make an effective speech, and promote decision-making through group discussions. The document provides information on: selecting and assembling inexpensive audiovisual aids; ways for developing public relations through intelligent use of publicity; the printing of effective materials; and the use of mass media techniques such as closed-circuit television, programed instruction, and health museums. The text examines the health worker's concern with determining community health needs, the planning of programs to meet these needs, the organizing of committees to carry out the programs, the need for evaluation, and the role of research. A list of suggested reading is at the end of each chapter. (nl)
