Explore some of the resources on the following pages on the EH/VNAA website.

Partner Events: Displays a list of upcoming webinars. Although some have registration fees, are only for EH/VNAA members, or are related to the payment issues in the United States, others are free and about clinical issues of interest to home health nurses everywhere.

Free On-Demand Education : Provides free access to multiple previously-recorded EH/VNAA webinars. Although many are about insurance, payment and quality issues in the United States, there are webinars about clinical issues that are helpful to nurses, such as infection control, medication management, vaccination and wound care.

Blueprint for Excellence Resource Index: The Blueprint for Excellence initiative was developed by EH/VNAA clinical and organization experts to identify best practices and tools that support home healthcare, hospice and palliative care, making them available at no cost. Of special interest to home health nurses are the links to clinical interventions, patient support, resources and tools.
