Competencies of Florida Health Educators by Settings of Practice.
Sutherland, Mary; Fasko, Daniel
This study was designed to identify the specific competencies desired of Florida's bachelor level and master's level health educators as indicated by health educators practicing in the settings of community agency, public health, schools, and higher education. A valid instrument was used by 136 respondents to measure the importance of 135 competencies on a five-point scale. Results of the data analysis indicated: (1) Bachelor level health educators provide direct client services whereas Master's level health educators are primarily administrators and/or evaluators; and, (2) The importance of various health education competencies varies by practice settings, e.g., school health educators require more health content. A need exists for health education professional preparation programs to fully examine requirements in order to determine if a reality-oriented health educator is the end product. (Author)
