Course Description

This training is targeted towards supervisors and coordinators to help them support their team with the transition from face-to-face home visits to virtual home visits.  The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way many organizations and agencies must operate in order to follow public health guidelines.  Due to social/physical distancing recommendations and other restrictions, many home visiting programs are unable to visit families in their homes and have been challenged with finding other ways to reach families and continue to provide support and services during this time.  This training will examine the various opportunities and challenges of providing virtual home visiting services.
