The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Center for Career Development (CCDET) and the Department of Health Services (DHS) Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) are co-hosting two workshops this fall, Continuing Education for Caregivers: Training for Trainers and Investigation and Reporting Allegations of Misconduct. These workshops are partially subsided by DQA.
Continuing Education for Caregivers: Training for Trainers
This full-day workshop at a cost of $110 per participant, including lunch, combines the former Topical Training for Trainers and Experiential Video Training for Trainers. The workshop also provides an overview of the 3 new modules introduced in Spring 2013 workshops. New modules include Resident Rights, Fire Safety and Standard Precautions: A Focus on Hand Hygiene.
This workshop introduces participants to more than 30 hours of Caregiver Project training materials designed to prevent abuse and neglect, increase quality of care and meet continuing education requirements for caregivers in long-term care. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to train direct caregivers and other staff in their own facilities. NOTE: This class has been approved for 3 hours of required adult learning continuing education for all instructors of CBRF department-approved training under DHS 83.20. Additional instructor credits may apply – see website for more information.
Investigating and Reporting Allegations of Misconduct
This half-day workshop at a cost of $70 per participant will help participants identify the key components of conducting internal investigations into allegations of abuse, neglect and misappropriation. NOTE: Separate versions of this training are available for non-nursing home providers and nursing home providers. Please see workshop schedule for details.
Participants will develop an investigation protocol while learning about: conducting an investigation, interviewing skills, caregiver misconduct definitions and reporting requirements.
