Medical Notetaking training for volunteers
Wednesday, August 31, 2022, 11:30 AM until 2:00 PM
Board or Committee Meeting
Sometimes, the amount of information coming from a provider to the patient can be overwhelming, and in the heat of the moment, it's easy for patients to forget all the questions they meant to ask the provider. Volunteer medical note-takers can help members organize their questions and then accompany them to appointments to take careful notes and make sure the appointment has a two-way flow of information.
This notetaking training provided by the Executive Director of Northwest Neighbors Village, DC, is open to volunteers from all DC area villages. BMAV volunteers are welcome to join to learn this skill and offer it as part of rides to medical appointments. Those who have not yet volunteered but would like to provide this particular service are also welcome to register.
