The Student As a Catalyst for Change.
Neely, Russell
The Student Health Promoter (SHP) program at the University of Arizona is a campus-based service designed to offer students an opportunity to increase their awareness of wellness activities through the use of peer counseling techniques. SHP participants are undergraduate students not necessarily enrolled in health education who serve as referral services for both campus and community health agencies. The SHP training program is a three-credit course and offers curriculum areas relating to self-care, counseling skills, general knowledge of disease and protocol treatments, general pharmacology of nonprescription drugs, health risk assessment, understanding of the University's health manual, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and basic first aid, and contraceptive information and education. Student progress during the training period is monitored by both observation and performance indicators. Selection of trainees for the program is based on a combination of personal and academic qualifications. (LH)
