A Model Vocational High Technology in Health Care Demonstration Project. Final Performance Report.
Valencia Community Coll., Orlando, FL.
A unique training program in high tech obstetrical, neonatal, and pediatric nursing care areas was designed to be offered on site at Orlando (Florida) Regional Medical/Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Women. The training program offered 16 different courses to 355 employees over the 18-month period of the project. A needs assessment was disseminated to employees and newly hired workers were interviewed to determine training needs. Results were used to advise individuals and determine course offerings. Courses were offered on these subjects: (1) cardiac intensive care (neonatal and pediatric patients); (2) when the young die in a high technological environment; (3) minimizing traumatic effects for the child; (4) growth and development in high tech pediatric nursing; (5) advanced technology in adolescent nursing care, neonatal intensive care, pediatric nursing, and pediatric intensive care; (6) critical care concepts for obstetrical nurses; (7) nursing management of high risk pregnancy; (8) fetal monitoring; (9) advanced nursing care in labor and delivery; (10) high tech emergency/trauma nursing; (11) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation; and (12) pediatric nursing chemotherapy technology. (An 11-page report is followed by these attachments: project goals and objectives; course descriptions and objectives; course dates and participant numbers; list of presentations; needs assessment report; brochures and flyers; results of participants' evaluation of the program; independent evaluation report; and example of curriculum materials produced.)
