Q: We are very short staffed. Can volunteers fill in, and how do I find and train volunteers?
The CDC maintains a Training for Healthcare Professionals page and it has several COVID-19 related offerings, including for long term care and nursing home staff, that might help volunteers.
The website TRAIN.org also offers free training for different levels and professions, including volunteers. Offerings include a number of COVID related topics. Registration is required, but free. TRAIN modules can fulfill CEU’s for licensure.
Information is changing rapidly as the COVID-19 outbreak evolves. Please take the links on these pages, especially the NH DHHS, which coordinates the COVID-19 response in our state, and other public health resources such as your local public health department, the CDC and WHO to find the latest guidance and recommendations.
