03 Jun Hospital Advocacy Services During a Public Health Emergency: A Panel Discussion
From 10:30 AM until 11:45 AM
At Zoom Webinar
Presented by the New York State Center for Training and Technical Assistance / Angelina Ritorto, [email protected]
In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, many hospitals throughout New York State halted in-person advocacy services for the treatment of sexual assault patients from their local rape crisis or victim assistance organization, referred to here as the rape crisis program (RCP). Hospitals, RCPs, and sexual assault response teams or programs quickly developed new protocols for remote advocacy services by phone or video. To learn more about their successes, challenges, and lessons learned, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) conducted interviews with several RCPs throughout the State. This webinar will allow those RCPs to answer questions submitted by those in the field.
This panel will take place virtually, Wednesday, June 9th from 10:30 AM to 11:45 AM.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Angelina Ritorto: [email protected]
