Outreach Training To Unaffiliated Health Professionals In Rural Areas

Provide a training program to health professionals in the rural counties surrounding Rochester, NY: Livingston, Ontario, Wayne, and Wyoming counties (total population of approximately 350,000). Training will be how to identify and use reliable web-based and free information resources when they have a need for patient care or patient safety information. The emphasis will be on unaffiliated health professionals, especially RNs and social workers, although other health professionals will also be welcomed to any sessions. To better reach target audiences in these rural areas, the training sessions will be delivered via live and recorded webinars as well as through on-site training. It is proposed that there will be five onsite sessions and four live webinars. The live webinars will be recorded and available on the CLIC-on-Health ?For Local Health Professionals? site, as well as being freely available to anyone.
