Curriculum Design in Health Education
Conceicao, Simone C. O.; Colby, Holly; Juhlmann, Anne; Johaningsmeir, Sarah
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n130 p17-27 Sum 2011
While health care providers are knowledgeable of health conditions and of the information patients need to make appropriate health decisions and follow health providers' recommendations, they lack information about adult teaching and learning and appropriate curriculum design. Adult educators can contribute more sophisticated skills in program planning, delivery, evaluation, and research to create learner-centered programs promoting societal as well as individual change. This chapter describes a collaborative design model for developing curriculum for family caregivers of children with special health care needs. The curriculum focuses on access to information and seamless care for children, with the ultimate goal of fostering family independence. (Contains 1 table.)
