Common Sense Management for Caring Organizations
Because of the challenges involved in working with the direct care labor force, and their increasing importance to our nation’s ability to care for our growing aging population, numerous research studies have evaluated demonstration projects and interventions over the years. Previous research provides a strong evidence-base from a number of successful programs. Trial interventions have resulted in decreasing turnover, increasing employee retention, and positively effecting consumer/resident satisfaction. Despite a range of evidence-based practices, new approaches to enhance the effectiveness of known strategies and more evidence about those approaches is necessary. Direct care workforce issues remain challenging. Further, we know that the distance from evidence to practice is often great, and that knowing what to do is not the same as knowing how to do it. This course focuses on management approaches to direct care workforce issues from our own study of high-performing home care agencies and nursing homes.
