Orientation to Health Occupations: A Teacher's Guide.
Moore, Elizabeth V.
The teacher's guide to Orientation to Health Occupations is an outline for a course designed to create student awareness of the broad range of health occupations. It can be adapted for use at the junior high school through postsecondary levels and is designed to be used in a variety of ways. There are 18 units of instruction, each containing one cluster in which several related occupations are presented. Several audiovisual materials are suggested for each unit, to be selected by the teacher with the particular student group in mind. Objectives of the course are outlined, followed by the units, which are organized under the headings of hours, content, instructor's activities, students' behavioral activities, and references. The 18 clusters are: an overview, administration, patient care, dentistry, medical laboratory, health office occupations, medical diagnostic equipment, dietary occupations, social service, drug therapy, rehabilitation, communication skills, special senses, research science, community and environmental health, other occupations, hospital financing, and supportive occupations.
