Redcay, Madeleine C.
This module on health assessment is one of a set of six developed to prepare human services workers for the changing mental health service delivery system. A total of seven objectives are included to help students utilize knowledge of physical factors which may influence health and behavior in order to recognize signs and symptoms which indicate the need for nursing or medical consultation. Following notes on the target population (community college student), module length (51 class hours), and suggested class size (15-25 students), the module contains the following seven sections: (1) a list of behavioral objectives, (2) the instructional design of the module, (3) a pretest on the module goal, (4) a list of materials for the course, (5) instructional procedures for each behavioral objective, (6) a posttest on the module goal, and (7) student feedback on the module. In addition to listing instructional procedures for each objective, the module informs the student of the estimated class time for completion, equipment needed, and how to demonstrate competency. Appended material includes an article on psychopharmacology and a sample paper and pencil test relating to body systems. (LRA)
