To Help Combat COVID-19 Globally, Cornerstone Foundation and Project HOPE Provide Free Online Training for Healthcare Workers
New online curriculum teaches frontline healthcare workers how to safely screen, triage and treat COVID-19 patients in remote regions
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 16, 2020 /CNW/ - Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSOD), a global leader in people development solutions, today announced an expanded collaboration between the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation and Project HOPE, a nonprofit global health and humanitarian organization, to provide vital and urgently needed COVID-19 training courses to frontline healthcare personnel in remote areas.
The series of free, online trainings is designed to help healthcare workers on the frontlines of the pandemic increase their capacity to respond rapidly and efficiently to the threat of COVID-19, while also protecting their own health. Starting today, the courses offered through Project HOPE will now be available in more languages, including English and Spanish, and in new regions, including Africa.
"In a time when in-person training is no longer possible, online learning is an even more essential means of rapidly training healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic," said Julie Brandt, executive director of the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation. "We are proud to partner with Project HOPE to make these courses accessible to all health workers, but particularly those in remote locations with low bandwidth and in developing nations where the rate of infection continues to rise."
Project HOPE began this initiative by conducting COVID-19 trainings to local staff and worked with professionals at the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies at the Watson Institute of Brown University to provide remote, live trainings to medical professionals on the ground in hot spots globally. Project HOPE found the perfect partner in the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation, which already had the tools and resources to create digital trainings that could be accessible to any aid worker around the world.
"Providing training is one of the most important and long-lasting ways Project HOPE has supported local health workers worldwide for over 60 years," said President and CEO of Project HOPE Rabih Torbay. "As the global COVID-19 case numbers began to rise in the early days of the pandemic, demand for our live health worker training increased exponentially. Collaborating with the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation enabled this critical training to reach more health workers in additional countries."
To date, more than 2,800 learners in 139 countries have taken approximately 5,000 hours of training, and demand for the online learning program continues to grow. The training curriculum includes:
