PA Training: What’s the Scoop?
Have you wondered what it takes to become a Patient Advocate? Our PAs attend one 4-hour training session in order to learn how to fulfill their volunteer position. These sessions are held each month and we have one coming up on January 13th from 9-1. Training gives me an opportunity to meet volunteers and answer any questions they may have. Additionally, through discussions and interactive activities, volunteers are able to actively learn what their responsibilities are. Here’s what some volunteers have said about the training/program:
“I liked the information given and how it was broken down.” -Anita M.
“I think the Patient Advocate program is a great way to bridge the gap between consumers and services.” -Jackie K.
“I liked how relaxed and laid-back the training was. It was very interactive and that made it more engaging.” -Elyssa L.
Training includes, but is not limited to:
I’ve trained about 24 volunteers to date and they are all cause-oriented, meaning they firmly believe in our mission. This is ultimately what drives them to volunteer with us. Join us for our first training of the new year on Saturday, January 13th from 9-1. Contact me at 313-308-1400 x319 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and to RSVP!
