This instructor's lesson plan guide on the musculoskeletal system is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (paramedics). Five units of study are presented: (1) the major bones, joints, and muscles of the body; (2) patient assessment of a musculoskeletal injury; (3) pathophysiology and management of musculoskeletal injuries (fractures, dislocations, sprains, and strains to various bones and joints); (4) the procedures for the use of the various splinting devices; and (5) clinical experience in the emergency department. Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outline, and needed equipment and materials. Skill evaluation sheets are provided. (It is suggested that each module can be presented individually or combined with other modules to construct a course for a selected group of students. CE 017 514 is a course guide for use in planning and implementing the total training program.) (JH)
