Maintaining Quality of Clinical Care
During a Public Health Crisis
CEU Workshop for Professionals
Monday, October 17 from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET
Presenter: Dr. Paulette Baldwin
(2 CAT 1 CEU’s)
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many services that were formally offered in-person have moved to a virtual space. While this has created opportunities for increased access to clinical services, it has also raised unique challenges as it relates to confidentiality, connection, and quality of care. During this session, we will explore the impact of the public health crisis (COVID) on both clients and practitioners, discuss ways to stay emotionally and physically healthy as a caregiver in a virtual world, explore some of the unique challenges that clients are facing and learn some tips & tools for effectively engaging clients in a virtual setting. Please note this training meets the requirements for social workers licensed in DC to attain credits in public health topics.
