A health care white paper is a persuasive essay, containing a problem, findings, solutions, and an alternative solution to a discussion topic critical to the health care profession. The white paper is supported by data and survey results while offering possible solutions or strategies one can apply within an organization regarding the topic.
ASHHRA publishes a vast number of articles, and category-appropriate articles will be placed in toolkits to aid the understanding of the specified topic.

Encore presentations of webinars and videos that were previously held on a toolkit topic, if available, will be in the eLearning Network, and will be linked to toolkits again to aid member knowledge. The PDF file will contain information about the webinar as well as the link to replay the recording.
