Developing Effective In-Service Training Programs.
Smith, Christopher A.
This manual provides step-by-step directions for developing an inservice staff training program in a rehabilitation facility. The manual is organized in five chapters. Following an introduction that defines inservice training, the first chapter discusses inservice problem identification procedures (conduct a needs assessment and determine present performance and existing deficiencies), while the second chapter presents 10 steps for developing an inservice training program (commit the facility to staff training; select training objectives; write performance objectives; select course prerequisites; select and sequence course content; construct competency tests; select an instructional method; determine instructor requirements; select and prepare training aids; and determine equipment requirements). The third and fourth chapters provide information on evaluating the inservice training program and responding to changing inservice needs. The final chapter presents three models of training programs: the Stanton conferencing instructional package for group instruction; the Rottier "turnover notebook" style of instructional packages for individual learning; and the Rehabilitation Associate Training for Employed Staff (RATES) modules for individual or group learning. Appendixes contain needs assessment formats, a DACUM chart format for developing curriculum objectives, a chart of instructional strategies, a resource list, and inservice training forms and curriculum.
