HCAF Members: Test Your Home Health Aides on Being Part of a Team

As a benefit of membership, HCAF provides agencies with In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care, a monthly publication that addresses relevant topics for home health aides. Topics addressed in In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care have included stress and burnout, nutrition and food safety, professional boundaries, ulcers and more.

The November 2011 edition addresses being part of a team, about which aides will learn the following:

  • The importance of teamwork
  • The importance of the care plan
  • The importance of professionalism
  • The Aide’s role in observation and reporting
  • The Aide’s role in documentation

Each edition of In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care is packed with useful information on the month’s topic as well as a post-test (answer key included) for home health aides so they can earn one hour towards the 12 hours-per-year Medicare requirement!

The current edition and past editions can be accessed on HCAF’s In-Home Aides-Partners in Quality Care webpage, which is only accessible to HCAF members by clicking here.
