Crash Injury Management Instructor Training Institute: Final Report.
Cleven, Arlene M.
The purpose of this study was to expose key individuals to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)-developed curriculum materials for crash injury management and to teach them how to teach. The scope of the training effort is described using a detailed discussion and separate conclusions for the following tasks: planning, selecting institute sites and dates, developing and adapting course materials, enrolling and informing candidates, selecting and orienting teacher trainers, conducting and evaluating institutes, and providing follow-up services. The objective was accomplished through five 30-hour instructor training institutes conducted in various areas of the country. Enrollees were associated with law enforcement or emergency medical services. Seventy-three percent of the enrollees expect that their organizations will use all or some of the NHTSA curriculum materials in their future training. Appended are: curriculum notice and reference sources, research review, institute outlines, institute forms and handouts, enrollment memoranda, enrollee roster, institute evaluation summaries, and institute follow-up letter.
