Hartley, Celia L.; And Others
This document features four annual reports from 1988-89 to 1991-92 on a community college-nursing home partnership project undertaken by Shoreline Community College (SCC), in Washington. Each report provides a brief summary of the project and describes actions undertaken to achieve the following project objectives: (1) the establishment of mechanisms to foster communication between SCC, nursing homes, and elder care centers to improve the quality of patient care; (2) the organization of faculty development activities that stimulate interest in gerontological caregiving careers; (3) the analysis of SCC's current curriculum to identify changes required to enhance program emphasis on gerontology; (4) the implementation of experiences designed to encourage graduate interest in gerontology; (5) the evaluation all project activities; and (6) reporting the evaluation of project processes and outcomes. The first report covers the project's second year (July 1, 1988-June 30,1989) and includes 12 appendixes providing information on project workshops and staff training sessions, evaluation forms for workshops and sessions, lists of related instructional films and videos, a preceptor handbook, course descriptions and outlines, and newsletters. The second report chronicles the efforts undertaken in the third year of the grant (July 1, 1989-June 30, 1990), while the final two reports cover efforts undertaken between July 1, 1990-June 30, 1992 when unused funds from the original 3-year grant were expended and in which an emphasis was placed on both nursing home staff and college faculty development.
