This Vocational Instructional Management System (VIMS) module illustrates instructional and cognitive strategies that can be used to teach special needs students vocational competencies in three areas of health occupations: (1) identification of pulse sites; (2) taking a radial pulse; and (3) converting ounces to cubic centimeters (cc). Three definitions, 11 frequently asked questions, 1 example, and 7 references are included. The following questions are answered: What is the difference between instructional and cognitive learning strategies? Why should I use cognitive or learning strategies? Who needs to learn cognitive strategies? What instructional strategy could be used for teaching identification of pulse site? What cognitive strategy could be used for learning pulse sites? What instructional and cognitive strategy could be used to teach students how to check a radial pulse with the patient lying in bed? What cognitive strategy teaches the competency of converting ounces to ccs? and Where can I get more information about both strategies? (Four sources are listed.) An example illustrating sites for taking a pulse is included. (NLA)
