Now Available - Vaccine Ambassador Training
Posted on April 21, 2021 by Jenna Kellerman
According to the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, the most effective way to address vaccine hesitancy is through conversations with trusted peers. LeadingAge Minnesota has piloted COVID-19 Vaccine Ambassador training, a new Safe Care for Staff initiative for frontline staff. We have scheduled additional training opportunities on April 30, May 3, and May 6. The training is free. Please register by April 28.
The program consists of a one-hour virtual training and resources needed to launch the initiative in your organization. Tools include a conversation guide, implementation plan, marketing and social media templates, access to experts and other resources.
“Building a non-judgmental culture that is open and accepting of individual decisions can be challenging. Transparent communication about side effects, and the experiences of people who were hesitant then eventually took the vaccine, can reduce fears,” says Dr. Alyson VanAhn, from Associated Clinic of Psychology and lead faculty for the Safe Care for Staff’s COVID-19 Vaccine Ambassador Program.
All staff who are vaccinated are encouraged to become ambassadors.
