Mapping Resources to Work Priorities
The Talent Share Program provides a solution to campus staffing gaps by matching up available employees impacted by a reduction in workload due to COVID-19, with other colleges or departments who have staffing needs. It also provides employees an opportunity to develop skills and experience through exposure to other areas of campus. Learn more.
When the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic hit and the world changed, one thing remained constant: UD’s Student Health Services (SHS) stayed true to its mission to provide students with quality primary health care and education about healthy lifestyles.
"We are charged with providing the students the very best in health care and ask that students participate in their own health care by being an active and informed consumer," said Dr. Tim Dowling, director of Student Health Services. "Within the scope of the Student Health Services, the health care providers and staff are a resource to help students achieve an optimal state of well-being."
That support has never been more important than during the pandemic.
As news about the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus spread, SHS responded with quick action to set up a triage trailer. In January, SHS drilled and prepared in anticipation of COVID-19 hitting the campus in the spring. SHS was able to pivot and make changes to normal operations quickly and efficiently. Nursing staff shifted from specific roles within SHS to more general roles, doing whatever was needed to care for students, when the University sent everyone home, while maintaining an essential staff to quickly and efficiently care for local students. Care was shifted to an appointment-based system only, and telehealth protocols were developed. Both these changes are expected to remain in place for years to come.
