RI COVID-19 Response Evaluation – The CHW Experience

May 31, 2023 : 1:00 pm 2:30 pm

RI Department of Health Logo

Join the Rhode Island Department of Health for a “hotwash” session, aimed at collecting input on the CHW experience during the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to help us be better prepared for a future emergency. This type of activity is a common tool used across the field of emergency response as a way to come together, gain consensus on what happened, and take steps to be more ready in the future.

Our meeting will focus on the following:

  • What Happened– this section will focus on just the facts and events that occurred, making sure we have proper documentation of the timeline of events
  • Strengths– this section will focus on strengths and successes of the response​
  • Areas of Improvement – this section will focus on what could have been done better​
  • Barriers and Challenges – this section will focus on what may have prevented certain things from happening that we could not have really done anything about​
  • Recommendations– this section will focus on general suggestions for achieving better outcomes in a future situation

Please feel free to forward this invitation to other Rhode Island CHWS who have been involved in the pandemic response. You are also welcome to forward to former team members that may have left your organization but hold important memories of our collective action to combat COVID-19 here in RI. The notes will be anonymized, summarized, and analyzed to create a report for RI leadership and the community.

If you have trouble registering, email Rein, Blaise (RIDOH-Contractor) Blaise.Rein.CTR@health.ri.gov.
