This course can only be added to your schedule by visiting the Registrar’s Office. If you do not visit the Registrar’s office, you cannot add this course to your schedule. This practicum is open only to students who have successfully completed Community Healthcare Seminar. These students will now actively serve as Health Coaches in the Community Care Network (CCN). Working under the supervision of health personnel from the Wooster Community Hospital, the students will support the clients in making good lifestyle choices, help them monitor medications distribution, regularly check blood pressure and glucose levels, and assess living conditions in the homes, as appropriate. Each week the students will report on the status of their client(s) before a panel of health professionals from the hospital. Through this process students will learn to identify potential discharge coordination needs and chronic disease management challenges as well as to refine their patient interaction skills. May be repeated. S/NC Prerequisite(s): IDPT-13000 Annually.
