UNIT 3 ASSIGNMENT INTRODUCTION SCRIPT:
For this assignment, you may wish to use the National Health Education Standards, a list of standards created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. NHES is an outlet for health education and awareness in schools throughout the United States. These standards are a useful resource for you to consult when developing a new healthcare initiative.
How you communicate is just as important as what you communicate. As leaders in the field, you will be expected to communicate with others on areas of concern in health care and even on research findings. Honing your communication skills now will better prepare you for success in the field. Some examples of communication used in health care include writing emails, letters, blogs, and articles for publication, as well as delivering verbal instructions and professional presentations.
