This module is one in a series of trainings intended for the public health workforce in Massachusetts. Many of modules in the series will also be of interest to governing officials, heath care and emergency workers, and the general public. The modules can be used in a variety of ways:

  1. As a self-paced training (move through the pages at your convenience) or use as an online resource/reference manual (allowing browsing to separate sections as appropriate).
  2. As a self-paced training with a certificate upon completion (requires registration to establish a learner profile and completion of pre and post tests)
  3. In a facilitated, small group or classroom setting, with flexible time segments. (We have developed a Facilitator's Guide that provides suggestions for how to conduct the training in this manner. Each facilitator can adapt the guidelines and/or incorporate his/her own training methods to best meet the needs of any given group who will partake in this training.)
