As part of its 2020 CARES Act Telehealth Award from HRSA, Family Voices National created a Telemedicine Curriculum titled the Nuts and Bolts of Telemedicine: Essentials for a Family-Centered Experience.

The curriculum includes four webinars:

  1. Are you Connected?
  2. Do you Have a Device?
  3. Can You “See” Your Provider?
  4. Your Family’s First Telemedicine Appointment.

There is a recording of each webinar that serves as a train-the-trainer so presenters can familiarize themselves with the information. There is an accompanying set of PowerPoint slides and talking points, in English and Spanish, that presenters can use “as is” or adapt to best need the needs of the families they serve.
