About the Training: The Abuse Prevention Workgroup of IDPH's COVID-19 Equity Team will present a tool on Universal Resources Sharing. This tool can be used by all Patient Health Navigators/CHW and all medical personnel/volunteers coming into contact with patients via COVID testing, contact tracing, and vaccine distribution in the state of Illinois. Patient Health Navigators/CHW are in a unique position to share resources with people who may be experiencing abuse and this does not require screening for abuse.
