The Clinical Instructor Training Program: Development, Operation, Evaluation. Final Report.
Anderson, Miles H.
To determine if on the job training of allied health personnel could be improved by offering supervisors a short seminar in teaching techniques, a 12-hour program was developed, and 1,299 participants were trained over a 3-year period. The five training sessions utilized demonstration and "learning by doing" techniques to teach participants how to organize inservice training and teach on the job. To evaluate the effectiveness of the program, questionnaires were mailed to participants. Over 80 percent of the 429 respondents felt the program was outstanding or well done, and an equal number indicated that as a result of the program, patient care had been improved to some extent. The results indicate that the training should be continued and expanded, and that similar short seminars in other aspects of human relations, supervision, leadership, and management should be prepared and offered in the health care field. Instruction cards, a job break-down sheet, certificates, a copy of the survey instrument, and other study materials are appended. (Author/SB)
