As many cities and counties across the country have implemented “shelter in place” orders, the necessity of social distancing is rapidly changing the way we navigate our day-to-day lives and our careers. Each of you are working through how to do your work virtually where possible. We will be sharing a series of resources and guidelines on how to navigate the work you do with our tools digitally. You will find our first resource below on LS/CMI user trainings.
My LS/CMI user training was cancelled. Can I get trained on the LS/CMI while social distancing is required?
We recognize that the LS/CMI training has typically been delivered in-person. We are receiving questions about how to train staff when social distancing or shelter in place orders have been issued. There are some alternatives that will allow you and your organization to complete your LS/CMI (Level of Service/Case Management Inventory) training remotely.
LS/CMI online On-Demand training.This training was developed to teach users how to administer and score the LS/CMI.
Presented by co-author of the tool, Dr. J. Stephen Wormith, this online workshop will provide you with item-by-item instructions on how to reliably score the measure and interpret its findings, a review of the peer-reviewed research on the LS/CMI will be provided, and guidance will be put forth on how to apply LS/CMI reporting conventions in practice.
The LS/CMI On-Demand training can be completed at home or wherever you are choosing to shelter in place. Additional information is available here: gifrinc.com/ls-cmi.
