Ask the Expert/Screening Tools Initiative: Talking Participants through the Healthy Start Screening Tools
February 28, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The art of asking sensitive questions requires the strategic use of communication skills. Healthy Start participants should feel respected throughout the screening process and know how the information will be used to best tailor the services they need. This webinar will provide Healthy Start staff who administer the screening tools the fundamental approaches that will make the screening tools conversational. The rationale for inclusion of specific medical conditions and medications sections of the screening tools will also be discussed.
