Locating Health Resources. Teenage Health Teaching Modules.
Education Development Center, Inc., Newton, MA.
The Teenage Health Teaching Modules (THTM) program is a health education curriculum for adolescents. Each THTM module frames an adolescent health task emphasizing development of self-assessment, communication, decision making, health advocacy, and self-management. This module offers information on how young people may avail themselves of community health care facilities, locate appropriate health resources, establish sound communication with health professionals and understand methods of paying for health care. An outline is presented of five class sessions in which the students will: (1) explore attitudes toward health resources and identify elements of self-care and preventive care; (2) identify expectations for patients and caregivers, and talk to a health care worker; (3) examine ways to pay for health services and care; (4) learn about specialists, clinics, hospitals, voluntary health organizations, and alternative health care, and also locate resources in their community and learn how to find them outside of the community; and (5) discover the functions of community health officials and examine health problems in the community.
