Feilner, Veronica, Ed.
The first component of this three-part package is a student manual designed to be used independently in secondary health occupations programs or on-the-job training programs for administrative medical assistants. The manual contains six units that cover the following topics: introduction to administrative medical assisting, communication skills, safety, office management techniques, medical records, and insurance and finance. Units are organized in lessons, which contain lesson objectives, key terms, content information, illustrations, and activity sheets. Each unit has a written evaluation to test students' knowledge and skill sheets that provide a record for mastery of the steps of procedure for each skill. A unit checklist located at the end of each unit provides a method for keeping track of activity sheets, clinical and laboratory activity sheets, skill sheets, and written unit evaluations. The second package component, the instructor key, provides answers to the activity sheets and unit evaluations. The third package component is a one-page student competency record. Contains 12 references and a glossary of 76 terms. (KC)
