When a soldier was injured during the war a stretcher bearer team would come to pick up the casualty so that they can get him to the next echelon of care. At each different level of care the healthcare professionals responsible for taking care of the sick and injured faced numerous challenges when providing patient care. Those responsible for taking care of soldiers on their darkest days have been considered by many the unsung heroes of WWI.
In cooperative learning groups, students will examine primary and secondary sources from doctors, stretcher bearers, chaplains, and nurses to see the crucial role that they played in care for the sick and wounded. Each group will be assigned to one of the healthcare professionals and given different documents to read. Each member of the group will then share what they have learned from that document. As a group they will answer the questions as a group about what they have learned from the healthcare professional:
What were the challenges of the job?
Why did people choose this job?
How was this healthcare professional able to make a difference?
What improvements can be made to help provide better care for casualties?
Groups will then share the role that their healthcare professional played during the war to see the numerous challenges that healthcare professionals faced at different phases of care.
