The following topics are covered: medical ethics, law, and history; health issues; health care facilities; health careers; career decisions; organization and general plan of the body; first aid; human relations; medical terminology and abbreviations; anatomy and physiology (the integumentary, skeletal and muscular, digestive, circulatory, respiratory, nervous, urinary, reproductive, and endocrine systems); nutrition/ dental health; microbes and diseases; metrics for health occupations; safety and emergency care; recordkeeping; and health care procedures. Included in each unit are most or all of the following components: performance objectives, suggested activities, information sheets, assignment sheets, job sheets, transparency masters, unit tests, and answers to the unit tests. The units are planned for more than one classroom period of instruction. (MN)
