Perceived Importance of Health Educator Competencies.
Sutherland, Mary; Fasko, Daniel
A study was designed to compare the perceived importance of selected competencies expected of bachelor's level and master's level health educators by practice settings. Subjects were 136 health educators who rated the importance of 135 competencies in the areas of administration, general health knowledge, communication, and evaluation. Results of the study indicated significant differences between health educators practicing in community and public health, schools, higher education, and others in their ratings of bachelor's level competencies in the areas of administration, communication, and evaluation, and no significant differences in the area of bachelor's level general health knowledge, as well as all master's level competencies. Generally, the master's level ratings were significantly higher than the bachelor's level ratings, except for general health knowledge. (Author/JD)
