Orientation to Hospital Operation: Programmed Instruction for Health Professionals.
Health Resources Administration (DHEW/PHS), Bethesda, MD.
The programed instructional text is designed to offer health professionals basic information about hospital practice. It is divided into four major hospital areas: liability; the medical staff; using the hospital; and the physician and standards of quality care. The section related to using the hospital takes up half of the text and develops understanding of standards and procedures related to admitting, medical records, nursing services, other services, and two medical case studies. The case study approach is frequently used and is combined with questionnaires leading the student through the areas of study. A summarizing questionnaire concludes the self-instruction text. (MW)
