Our GWEP team, in collaboration with Comagine Health, developed a training program related to Telehealth in Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS). Consisting of a 3-Part ECHO series, toolkit, and an online training course, our goal is to educate LTSS providers, patients/residents, and families to prevent COVID exposure and promote the readiness to respond to COVID-19 through telehealth utilization. This program will provide access to telehealth technologies by training LTSS staff, providers, and patients, families, and caregivers.
Our Telehealth in LTSS online course is innovative, evidenced-based, and includes best practices for using telehealth will roll-out late spring/early summer on the Northwest Regional Telehealth Resource Center’s (NRTRC) Training and Education website for professional development.Read more

UGEC faculty and students frequently present topics relevant for LTSS providers and staff as well as older adults and family caregivers in the community for conferences and University classes. When possible, we share these with our UGEC partners and communities. Please use these for your own knowledge attainment and share with others individually or in groups.
