4th April 2020
We are very thankful for your ongoing support every day in helping to share information about Coronavirus COVID-19.
Below are a few updates for you:
Digital Partner Pack Update
Guidance and Resources for Disability Services
COVID-19 Guidance is now available for staff and carers who provide services to people with disabilities.
This guidance will ensure that staff and carers are fully aware of the steps they need to take during the outbreak.
The HSE convened a group made up of representatives of the voluntary sector disability service providers to develop disability specific guidance and resources. These are in line with nationally approved guidance issued by the HSE and the Health Protection Surveillance Centre. Where necessary, guidance has been reviewed by clinical leads and approved by the HSE’s Vulnerable Person’s Group, convened to lead the response to the needs of vulnerable people during this pandemic.
The Easy Read version of the COVID-19 Public Information Booklet
The Easy Read version of the COVID-19 Public Information Booklet will help those who sometimes find content hard to read, understand or act on. The Easy Read is also available to download here along with the original information guide which has been translated into many languages and is available as an audio guide.
You can also order hard copies of the Easy Read version on www.healthpromotion.ie if you click into “Order Publications”.
There are a number of updated and new posters, including one on cocooning. All of the materials are available to download here
If your organisation has any specific requests or urgent needs in relation to COVID-19 public health information materials, please email us at Partner.Pack@hse.ie to let us know.
