Curriculum Development for the "Generalist Nurse." Report on a WHO Consultation (Turin, Italy, June 13-16, 1990). EUR/HFA Target 27.
World Health Organization, Copenhagen (Denmark). Regional Office for Europe.
This report presents the findings and advice of a Steering Committee whose purpose in accordance with Health for All (HFA) Target 27 of the World Health Organization (WHO), "Rational and preferential distribution of resources according to need," was to provide the EURO Nursing Unit relevant information towards the development of an educational program that would assist, at the country level, in the development of a basic nursing curriculum for WHO's European members. The information presented covers, not only a restatement of earlier agreed upon roles, functions, and competencies of the generalist nurse, but also the identification of any educational models currently existing in Member States which may be adopted or adapted to develop the generalist nurse program in Member States, recommendations on appropriate curricular structure and content for consideration by countries, suggestions on strategies to prepare nurse teachers and managers in developing generalist nurse programs, the identification of schools and departments of nursing which may be approached to participate as pilot sites for program implementation and evaluation of experimental programs, and time schedule proposals. Recommendations are also presented for actions by WHO in the promotion of training for health professionals throughout Europe. Appendixes contain a list of temporary project advisers and observers as well as summaries of the report in French, German, and Russian. Contains 16 references. (GLR)
