Emergency!! A Core Curriculum for Continuing Education in Emergency Care.
Bechtel, Jody; And Others
Intended as a guide for developing emergency medical-care training, these six curriculum outlines have been used and adapted to the personnel development needs of both the rural community hospital and the large metropolitan hospital. The outlines are preceded by a discussion of the principles of learning by John George, who emphasizes the importance of the learner's direct involvement and participation at all levels of curriculum planning and implementation. Each outline then presents a broad objective for every subtopic, a summary outline of content for that part of the program, and a list of behavioral objectives to be completed. The first of six outlines covers general information on emergency medical services including studies in the organization and staffing of the emergency room, the communications, policies and protocol, and legal considerations. Outlines 2, 3, 4, and 5 cover emergency care for patients with respiratory problems, with cardiac problems, in trauma, and involved in other medical emergencies. Finally, the guide concludes with study outlines in the special categories of burn therapy, pediatric emergencies, obstetrical emergencies, and psychiatric emergencies. (BM)
