Preventing Cancer in the Workplace and Community. Volume II. Cancer, the Worker and the Community. An Independent Study Guide.
Li, Virginia C., Ed.; And Others
This second volume of a two-volume set on prevention of cancer in the workplace is a self-instructional manual designed for independent study by students who consult on a regular basis with an instructor. The manual follows a consistent format. The narrative text in each of three sections presents current knowledge about the subject and refers to readings in the course textbooks. Exercises, following each section of the manual, are designed both to assess student learning and to extend student thinking about the issues discussed in the chapter. Suggested readings provide further references for the student. A glossary summarizes the technical terms used throughout the manual. It also contains a self-assessment questionnaire that may be used as both a pretest and a posttest. Finally, the manual provides a sample individualized learning contract that can give structure to the study. The three sections of the manual cover the following topics: a scientific look at cancer, cancer prevention, and topics of special interest (radiation and cancer, literary portrayals of the workplace, psychosocial aspects of cancer, and federal intervention efforts). A short glossary and lengthy bibliography complete the manual. (KC)
