Ernst, Nora S.
This manual is intended to serve as a resource to assist nursing home inservice instructor coordinators in presenting effective orientation and continuing inservice programs. Designed according to a modified self-instructional approach, it presents background information on factors influencing inservice, guidelines for planning programs, discussions of major teaching methods, and procedures for integrating inservice into a facility. The following topics are addressed in the guide: the role of an inservice trainer; the meaning of the terms inservice and teacher; things that an instructor coordinator needs to know about learning; how to manage a group; the importance of planning; how to conduct a needs assessment; the importance of writing objectives; the benefits of lecture and demonstration; small group discussions, handouts, case study, role playing, and simulation games; ways to use outside resources; the best use of instructional media; the importance of review and practice; learner evaluation; the benefits of inservice to the nursing home; and resources.
