Volunteer Screening

Volunteer screening is a critical component of both human resources management and risk management. The following tools support SMPs as they follow the key steps in our screening process: completing an application form, interviewing the candidate, checking references, conducting a background check and securing the volunteer’s informed consent and agreement to the program’s conflict of interest and confidentiality rules.
