Nurses & Physicians of Tomorrow. A World-Wide Survey on Professional Roles and Their Use as a Basis for Educational Programmes.
Guilbert, J. J., Ed.
Results of a World Health Organization survey concerning the use of learning objectives in medical and nursing education programs are presented, along with five case studies of educational programs. A total of 42 schools of nursing and 21 schools of medicine completed a questionnaire designed to elicit information concerning learning objectives. Each questionnaire item is presented, followed by a table in which all of the responses are presented. For each question, findings are discussed briefly, and some of the respondents' comments are reviewed. The following five case studies illustrate the use of learning objectives in educational programs in medical and nursing schools: Brandon General Hospital, School of Nursing, Manitoba, Canada; University of the Philippines Systems, College of Nursing; Padjadjaran University, School of Medicine, Java, Indonesia; University of Newcastle, Faculty of Medicine, New South Wales, Australia; and University Center of Health Sciences, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. Materials provided in the case studies include: a clinical experience record for nursing; a list of competencies expected of the nursing graduate; a list of skills, knowledge, and attitudes for two nursing courses; a list of process and content objectives for medical students; and learning objectives for specific medical school courses.
