Telehealth has become more common in the healthcare world, but not everyone has access to the technology needed to use it.

In Idaho, the Department of Health and Welfare led an innovative initiative to create telehealth pods in libraries and other community spaces to help expand access to care and worked to provide funding, technical assistance, and other supports.

In an effort to support these libraries and other telehealth access sites, the Center for Advancing Addiction Health Services (CAAHS) at the UW Addictions, Drug & Alcohol Institute (ADAI) has developed a free online toolkit with the goal of providing information that is crucial to providing safe, supportive, and accessible spaces in community settings where telehealth can be accessed.

The toolkit includes sections on:

  • Why telehealth is important
  • How to create spaces that are trauma-informed
  • Stigma related to substance use disorders and mental health
  • Confidentiality and privacy issues
  • How to evaluate your program/project
  • and more!

Though the toolkit is targeted at libraries implementing telehealth spaces, it can also provide useful information for clinicians who provide telehealth services and have clients who may be interested in using libraries or other "Third Spaces" for their appointments.

Join us for this exciting and fun session on May 22nd to not only hear from the team that created the toolkit, but be the FIRST to get a tour of the toolkit itself! It was created using Articulate Rise software, which makes it easy to navigate and use both on desktop and phone -- and it looks pretty awesome, if we do say so ourselves! Looking forward to seeing you there! REGISTER HERE!
