ASHHRA Toolkits

ASHHRA ToolkitsASHHRA is currently creating resources to meet member needs by providing toolkits that include processes, policies, tools, forms, white papers, articles, and educational media. These toolkits seek to educate, aid, and enhance ASHHRA member knowledge in specified topical areas. A definition of each toolkit will be provided to help members fully understand the value of each toolkit. The following is an outline of the content of these toolkits.

These documents describe an activity or a definition pertinent to the toolkit. The documents can also be a form or template to be used as a guide when creating documents unique to an organization.

White Papers and Articles
A health care white paper is a persuasive essay, containing a problem, findings, solutions, and an alternative solution to a discussion topic critical to the health care profession. The white paper is supported by data and survey results while offering possible solutions or strategies one can apply within an organization regarding the topic.

ASHHRA publishes a vast amount of articles that continue to aid members in their knowledge. Select articles will be placed in toolkits to aid the understanding of the specified topic.

Encore presentations of webinars and videos that were previously held on a toolkit topic, if available, will be in the eLearning Network, and will be linked to toolkits again to aid member knowledge. The PDF file will contain information about the webinar as well as the link to replay the recording.
