Product Description

This training program guides Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteer candidates through various topics that conform to the MRC Core Competencies Matrix. The tool covers various topics, including disaster preparedness, universal precautions, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and other topics essential for the proper training of volunteers.

The CD-ROM includes resource links, videos, a course map, and exercises for self-assessment. The current updated version based on MRC core competencies was reviewed by local MRC unit coordinators and the NACCHO MRC review team.
