Development of a Health Occupations Continuing Education Center. Final Report.
Stevens, Joyce; Latshaw, Lois L.
The final report summarized the development of a health occupations continuing education center. The project was designed to assess the needs of selected health occupations at the vocational level and to develop guidelines for the establishment of a model for a health occupations continuing education center. The learning needs of licensed practical nurses, nurses aides, and operating room technicians were identified through questionnaires. Perceptions of their learning needs were also obtained from instructional and supervisory personnel. Based on the findings of the survey, guidelines were developed for the establishment and operation of a learning center with a flexible approach to programing to meet the wide diversity of identified needs. Appendixes to the 10-page summary comprise the body of the document and contain: (1) a statement of philosophy and objectives; (2) the guidelines written for the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the learning center; (3) samples of forms to be used in the center; (4) the survey questionnaires; and (5) the report abstract.
