Orientation to Health Aide Careers Mini-Course & Home Health Aide Course.
Novak, Kathy; And Others
Designed for use in a self-paced, open-entry/open-exit vocational training program for home health aides, this program guide is one of six for teachers of adult women offenders from a correctional institution. Module topic outlines are presented on eight topics: your career as a health aide; maintaining health; recognizing illness; positioning and body mechanics; personal services for the bed patient; changing the bed linens and transfer activities; diets, medicines, and treatments; and home health aide on-the-job experience. For each topical area the concept, performance objectives, generalizations, occupational competencies, suggested learning activities, and criterion-referenced measures are listed. The training plan outlined suggests time periods for each topic within a twelve-week program. A job description and career ladder are included. A prototype student training plan is provided for simulated and/or on-the-job experiences. (The final report of the project to develop and field test the six guides is CE 017 808). (Author/JH)
