Training Methods and Continuing Education for Health Workers: Course Description

The International Health Department has placed Professor Bill Brieger's course 'Training Methods and Continuing Education for Health Workers' in the OpenCourseWare system. The lecture-based course focuses on teaching students to develop and implement training programs for health personnel. In addition, students learn how to identify potential participants, how to formulate measurable and attainable training goals and how to budget time and money for training. Students draw on and study real-life training guides for health workers and evaluate the effectiveness of the programs. Students in the original course developed their own training program as a final project.

The course site provides lecture slides, recommended reading list, sample training guides and links to helpful websites. To learn more about training in the healthcare sector, visit the continuing education and methods of training for healthcare workers course page.
