VDH, in partnership with the Virginia Home Visiting Consortium, has also developed Project Connect web-based training for home visitors. This training offers home visitors and other health care providers who have already attended a half day workshop continuing education on priority topic areas and advanced training on issues not currently covered in live workshops. State employees wishing to participate these web-based training modules should register on the TRAIN website and non-state employees should register at the Home Visiting Consortium's website .
Virginia's Project Connect Leadership Team, in collaboration with staff from Futures Without Violence, has developed a curriculum for home visitors and a curriculum for family planning/reproductive health workers. Four-hour trainings and train-the-trainer programs on the curricula, which include the power point presentations, review and discussions of video vignettes, role play and facilitated discussion are held in various parts of the Commonwealth throughout the year. The power points for each presentation are below, and a calendar of live training events is available online. Space is limited, so registration for live events is required.
