I hope this email finds you well and that you are managing in these unprecedented times.

We know many of our members are keeping busy doing fun family games, taking hikes and keeping busy with online CE. The sun is shining as I am typing this morning, the birds are chirping outside my window and I know today is going to be a great day. I look forward to Day 2 of our Online Quality Assurance Workshop and also to connecting with our rdhu team via Zoom.

I also got my mom, who's 85, on Zoom and now, along with my 3 other sisters, we are doing nightly dance parties after dinner. We chat for a few minutes and then play a song we pre-select and dance. Its definitely helping us feel more connected and less isolated during this quarantine!

I am wondering if any of you have considered what was in last week's On-Track-Tuesday?

Did you reach out to your team to suggest getting online together through Zoom every morning to do a ‘check-in’. Remember, it's not about texting or sending an email. It’s actually getting online to see each other…to ‘check-in’. How is everyone feeling? What is new with the family, new news? If you click here it will take you to Zoom where you can set up a free account and give it a try. Schedule a time every day and send an invite to your team.

Have you started to think about things you can do to prepare you to going back to practice? This is a great thing to do so that you don't feel disconnected right now from your practice and for when you return.

Connecting with your team now and putting some plans in place for your return will create momentum, help keep your mind positive and active, and give hope for the future.

We have a busy week planned here at rdhu.

Last week we held a LIVE online webinar with Gina Bailey, from the ODHA. We have new information to share since then, so we will be holding another one with 'The RDH View' and Gina, this coming Thursday, March 26th at 2pm. We will also be discussing Quality Assurance and provide ideas and resources to help keep you current with your CQI Activities. Click here if you would like to join us!

Bisco is holding another FREE Instrumentation workshop tomorrow night. Please find info below.

Beth Parkes and myself are offering a 3 day 1-hour Live Online Quality Assurance Workshop so we can help those who would like to work on their QA Records. We held our first one yesterday and it went really great! We received such positive feedback, which we really appreciated and we love doing this! We are holding another one next week.

We have received many texts, emails, and Social Media messages from people working on their SMILE portal. Even from members who are submitting in 2023!

2020 matters to those whose numbers end in 5 and 7, 4 and 9 & 3 and 8.

5 and 7 will submit in January, 2021 (for the years 2018, 19 & 20)

4 and 9 will submit in January, 2022 (for the years 2019, 20 & 21)

3 and 8 will submit in January, 2023 (for the years 2020, 21 & 22)

Let’s do what we can now during this time!

Please stay safe. My heart is with you and your families.

Kindest regards,
