Emergency Medical Technician. Competency Based Education Curriculum. Student Material.
Spotts, Sue Ann
Beginning with an introductory handbook, this competency-based curriculum contains 13 modules for an 81-hour secondary- or postsecondary-level course for Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). Introductory materials include module component descriptions and information for administering an EMT training program, such as an instructor's schedule, list of needed training equipment and audiovisuals, and required texts and supplementary references. Each module is divided into some or all of these components: behavioral objectives (skill and knowledge objectives), instructor activities, instructional equipment and materials, student activities with skill development checklist, anatomy and signal code handouts, module outline (instructor's lecture format with lecture topics and references), demonstration outlines, student practice sessions, skill evaluations, and task descriptions with loops (tasks are normal, logical flows of procedures, while loops are logical flows of procedures when a problem is recognized within a task). Module titles are Orientation and Registration, Basic Life Support and Primary Survey, Secondary Survey and Shock, Soft Tissue Injuries, Central Nervous System Trauma, Orthopaedic Injuries, Medical Emergencies, Patient Handling, Extrication, Emergency Care of the Emotionally Disturbed, Obstetrics and Pediatric Injuries, Triage and Special Care Situations, and Dispatch and Travel to the Scene.
