Overview

Presenter will walk participants through the basics of transitioning home visiting care to online. Topics to be discussed include: combating barriers to informed consent, assessing for safety, and promoting privacy and confidentiality.

TRAINING OBJECTIVES:

  1. Develop skills to facilitate a smooth transition to virtual home visits for both provider
    and client.
  2. Develop skills around creating a safe, trauma-informed space for clients to share openly
    during interactions with home visitors to ensure full and accurate assessment.

    unexpected issues that may arise in virtual home visits.
