OUTREACH > COMMUNITY EDUCATION
WE ARE A RESOURCE FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY. VNA California is a valuable partner for everyone, including the public, medical community and support service providers. We provide important educational information and services to help people understand the complex world of health and care giving.
In addition to adult blood pressure and other health screenings, we host Lunch N’Learn sessions at health fairs and other community centers and events, as well as adult grief and bereavement support workshops. We also have a Speakers Bureau to extend our outreach services into the community. Topics range from How to evaluate Hospice and Home Health options to Understanding Medicare and Medical Coverage Options.
PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION. VNA California provides professional education for nurses, nursing assistants and home health aides on topics related to hospice and home healthcare. We are a provider of nursing contact hours through the Board of Registered Nurses (BRN). In addition, VNA provides opportunities to see our work first-hand through our Student Ride-Along programs for medical and nursing students along with select internships.
Professional education for physicians is conducted in conjunction with local hospitals and other AMA-approved providers for Continuing Medical Education.
