Abstract:

Objective: The purpose of the two-year project was to develop a set of curricular enhancements for students enrolled in several different allied health training programs. Methods: Faculty from a variety of disciplines worked together to create learning experiences that could be used to enhance their curricula. The faculty met monthly, garnered input from folks with expertise in emergency preparedness, public health, and education. Students also provided input. Faculty were asked to find ways to integrate the modules into their respective curricula. Electronic version of the modules will be completed and tested by April 2006. Results: To date, over 550 students have been trained in eight programs at four different institutions. Modules were used as either classroom lectures or outside readings. Some instructors offered all modules in one day while others used several class periods. Post-test scores for knowledge and attitude varied by group and timing of the exam. The test scores across the four modules ranged from 25 to 100%. Allowing time between the presentation of materials and testing appears to improve scores. Attitudes about risk and need to participate was high across all student groups regardless of instructional method employed, although it did vary from year to year within the same discipline. Copies of the electronic modules will be made available to interested faculty. Implications: There are several effective ways to incorporate emergency preparedness training into curricula, and students accept that someday they may be involved in a disaster response.
