4.0 Training Measures

Operational Intent: These performance measures examine what activities have been implemented to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Conduct supplemental training for health care facility workers and awareness trainings to health care entities outside the acute health care system on COVID-19 patient identification, assessment, and treatment.

  • Continue to use novel approaches for education, readiness, and assessment activities to support COVID-19 response, including expanding the use of media, augmented reality/virtual reality, and technology to enhance training for staff and providing NETEC training and materials to health care facilities throughout the region (acting in a ‘train the trainer’ capacity).
