Welcome to the online volunteer training tutorial for the Women's
Health Information Center. This tutorial will teach you information
and skills useful in your role as a volunteer. As a volunteer, your
role is not to provide a diagnosis or a response to medically related
questions, but to guide clients to information resources appropriate
to addressing their questions. In this tutorial, you will learn
what it means to be a guide, what information resources are available,
and where to refer clients if they need more information.
More specifically, you will:
-- learn about the Women's Health Information Center (WHIC);
-- learn your role in guiding clients to appropriate WHIC resources;
-- learn how to evaluate online health information;
-- learn about WHIC resources, including selected online consumer
The tutorial is separated into 9 lessons that are designed to build
upon each other.
