2020-2021 Modules

Clinicians completed Needs Assessment Questionnaires and were consulted during pre-readiness, onsite visits and the preferred method of training delivery was through webinar. As such, trainings were conducted on a monthly basis via Zoom, in one-hour sessions during clinician lunch hours. Applicable modules included PowerPoint presentations that were distributed ahead of time and screen shared throughout the training session.
