Health Unit Coordinator: 21st Century Professional

by

Health Unit Coordinator: 21st Century Professional Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Health Unit Coordinator: 21ST Century Professional was written for a community college course, an in-house health care facility-based training program, and is also appropriate for an adult education or high school course. The authors bring a combined 60 years experience teaching and training health unit coordinators in a variety of health care settings! The book conforms to the Health Unit Coordinator National Certification Exam Content Outline based on the national job analysis. The National Association of Health Unit Coordinators Certification Exam Content Areas are included in each chapter to emphasize these entry level educational competencies. The professional association standards are used to support health unit coordinating as a health care profession. The importance of the team approach in the working environment is emphasized throughout the book.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook describes the role the health unit coordinator plays in managing patient information and communicating among team members, introduces medical terminology and abbreviations, and walks through the process of transcribing the written diagnostic and therapeutic orders of the medical staff. The CD-ROM contains practice orders sets for 25 conditions.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The book thoroughly explains the health unit coordinating profession and its responsibilities from the stages of a learner to a job seeker to a new employee to a seasoned health care team member. The book can be used to learn the basics, to prepare for the national certification exam, as an on-the-job reference, and as a training resource for the health unit coordinator preceptor. The book addresses the health care environment and team members and the health unit coordinator's role in that environment in effectively transcribing the physician's orders and coordinating the non-clinical tasks.
