Training Program Design. Interdisciplinary Team Training and Humanistic Patient Care for Hospices. Monograph 3.
English, David J.; Mortenson, Lee E.
This monograph, the third in a series of five, provides training information for hospice staff in improving interdisciplinary team functions and humanistic care provisions. Its purpose is to describe the steps in designing a training program for a particular hospice and the activities undertaken between the selection of the trainers and the beginning of the formal training sessions. Chapter 1 provides a detailed discussion of the need for and purposes of the training. Chapter 2 states the goals and objectives of the training program. Chapters 3 through 7 describe the steps and alternative techniques in designing the formal training program. Examples and suggestions from the ELM Institute's hospice training experiences are found throughout. Several steps of the training design are discussed: data collection (purpose and procedures for staff orientation); data analysis and identification of issues specific to the hospice concerned; preparation of reports; feedback of the reports to the staff; confirmation and prioritization of issues, and the selection of staff as well as the selection, design, and planning of a customized training program to address these issues; leadership (use of alternate trainers, training methods, and types of leader activities in groups); and training program evaluation. Appendixes include tables of contents of the five monographs and data collection/interview forms. (YLB)
