Basic Skills for Health Occupations, Health Service Aide: 3040.04.
Dade County Public Schools, Miami, FL.
Designed to develop selected skills common to many health occupations, the course includes fundamental and manipulative skills such as those required of the nurses aide. There are no prerequisites, and the 45-hour course is planned to provide the student with selected theoretical knowledge correlated with laboratory periods of applied practice in a simulated clinical situation. The outline consists of seven instructional blocks: (1) introduction, (2) essential features of the health service environment, (3) observing and recording, (4) determination of vital signs, (5) maintenance of safety and comfort, (6) personal hygiene, (7) height and weight determination and a posttest. Student involvement is stressed and approximately three-fourths of the total class time is devoted to laboratory experience. An appendix provides posttest samples. (Author/MW[
