The Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) has developed a new Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) training module specifically for Service Coordinators (SCs) and Direct Service Providers (DSPs).
SDoH are environmental and societal factors that impact health outcomes. The World Health Organization (WHO) describes SDoH as the conditions in which an individual is born, grows, lives, works and ages. These often-interrelated factors, though not medical in nature, can have a significant effect on health and long-term care outcomes.
The goal of this training is to educate SCs and DSPs about SDoH, review barriers to addressing SDoH with program participants, and apply the learning to the long-term care environment. To access the online training module, go to OLTL Service Coordinator Online Training – Dering. Complete the training module, then complete the registration page at the end of the training to receive credit for the course.
Questions about this training module should be directed to the enrollment unit.
