WHY a VIRTUAL CFR?

As they say: “necessity is the mother of invention.”  We responded to the pandemic by creating the Virtual Clinical First Responder.  

Although initially skeptical, we have been thrilled with the results and participants seem equally pleased.

All of the critical elements have been retained, including scenarios (the perennial staff favorite), which are actually even more effective online, as we are able to use the chat to highlight learning in the moment.  

In order to minimize online fatigue, we recorded a number of lectures which allowed us to reduce the training to 3 days of synchronous learning.  

The day of asynchronous material can be completed at participants’ leisure.  The training remains engaging with exercises and hands-on learning to keep it lively and interactive, and we have shortened the days to avoid screen burnout.  

Most importantly, participant feedback has affirmed that we have been successful at creating a sense of community and connection despite the challenges of being online. 

We are confident that participants will find our virtual offerings equally as valuable as our traditional in-person trainings.

“I am beyond pleased with how well it turned out!”

      Assessment Tool for Staff: The GRABBS is a hands-on practical tool that participants can use to gather and organize information in any situation. It is particularly useful in preventing staff from overriding their own judgment.

      Reviews: These sessions offer participants the opportunity to synthesize and apply the vast amount of material covered in the course.
