The Importance of the Health Education Role of the Environmentally Qualified Person: A Definition by Behavioural Learning Objectives.
Jolly, P. W.
Presented is a dissertation that demonstrates the importance of health education in the satisfactory accomplishment of the tasks of an Environmental Health Officer (EHO) or others similarly engaged in the same field. The rationale supporting the argument for the inclusion of a course of health education in the training program of environmentally qualified persons is developed, together with an outline of some of the theories of communication, the communication of innovations, and the socio-behavioral determinants of compliance with health recommendations. A systems approach to a health education program and to a program of learning is also presented. The main body of the dissertation analyzes the tasks of an EHO in health education as integrated within his general duties, and develops, in the form of learning objectives, what the EHO should know in order to be able to carry out these tasks satisfactorily in the field. The learning objectives would form the basis for the course curriculum in question. (Author/CS)
