This research study was completed at Legal Aid of Nebraska’s Health, Education, and Law Project. The goal of this quality improvement study was to enhance the effectiveness of future Health, Education, and Law Project (HELP) training sessions for staff members of HELP sites in Nebraska. Through the use of an online survey tool, we received staff members’ input on the current training program, assessed their knowledge on relevant topics, and gave respondents an opportunity to include any appropriate suggestions. By means of this study, we were able to conclude that although staff members seemed to appreciate the training sessions overall, more trainings are needed on immigrant and family-related social and legal issues that affect patient health.
