Client Rights Training Opportunities

Client Rights Training 

Client Rights Office (CRO) staff provide training for  community Client Rights Specialists and Program Managers dealing with Client Rights and the DHS 94 grievance resolution procedure.  We also make training available to interested others in the community.

We have created training modules for four different topics related to client rights.  Viewing these modules will allow provider staff and others to become educated on client rights for all "patients" and, if appropriate, specifically for "inpatients".  

We have also developed a separate training curriculum for Client Rights Specialists (CRSs) Training that allows people to be certified that their training is completed.  

All of the following modules can be linked to from here by anyone in the public.  However, no certificates of completion are available from these sites:
