Development of Short Term Preparatory Curricula for Multiskilled Health Workers. Final Report, July 1, 1989--June 30, 1990.
Iowa Univ., Iowa City. Coll. of Education.
During a 1-year project at the University of Iowa, curricula were developed for preparing respiratory care aides and rehabilitation aides in a short time frame. State advisory committees of experts in the field were convened to determine the competencies to be included. The competencies were validated with incumbent workers, and two short-term curricula were prepared. They include competencies, course objectives, content outlines, and suggested teaching methodologies. The curricula are aimed at registered nurses and licensed practical nurses who are already providing care of this type without benefit of a formal program. They will be reviewed and revised within 3 years. (A report supplement outlines the process of producing each of the curricula, and includes copies of competencies developed for rehabilitation aides and the validation study for rehabilitation aides.)
