Social workers are on the frontlines and see first-hand the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the populations we serve. To continue to provide services, many are adapting and revising the way services are provided turning to telehealth and other technologies.
NASW-FL is providing resources and information to help members navigate COVID19.

NASW-FL is providing a series of online training, case study analysis experiences, and practice conversations to support social work students and educators in Florida who are responding to the transition to online courses and remote or limited field placement opportunities. (Click here to view presenter bios and training materials.)
The following series - all sessions are ET - is available to all students and may be used to supplement field and coursework at no cost. Pre-registration is not required.
Once in the Zoom session, all participants will enter their contact information in the chat. Following completion of a session, NASW-FL will provide an electronic certificate to all participants.
Hopefully this will ease some of the burden of recent changes while maintaining the professional integrity of our social work programs and the CSWE standards.
Some of the sessions expect students to read a professional article or case materials prior to the session.
All presenters are members of the NASW-FL Board of Directors, previous board members, social work leaders, or previous NASW-FL presenters.
Please direct all questions or suggestions on additional sessions needed to Carol Campbell Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org

In 2019, Florida passed the Telehealth Bill which establishes standards of practice for telehealth services, including patient evaluations, record-keeping, and controlled substances prescribing. The bill also authorizes out-of-state health care practitioners to perform telehealth services for patients in Florida upon meeting certain eligibility requirements and registering with the department.
The Florida Department of Health has created a website that allows interested parties to sign up for updates and register to become an out-of-state telehealth provider. More information, please visit: flhealthsource.gov/telehealth
We are moving forward with the Conference as planned.
The Conference Brochure and registration will be available early April.
