The Need for Monitoring the Long-Term Care Direct Service Workforce and Recommendations for Data Collection
02/23/2009 | 325 Requests *
This White Paper recommends minimum data sets that states should collect to help assess the magnitude of workforce issues they face and to design and evaluate policy responses. The three basic data elements include: numbers of workers (full time and part time); stability of workforce (turnover and vacancies); and average compensation (wages and benefits). The authors also offer guidance on how to implement data collection.
