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 quality, aging, safety, teamwork, falls prevention and more.
The March 2013 edition addresses communication, about which aides will learn the:
- Importance of effective communication-basic principles
- Skills for effective communication: listening; self management; self awareness
- How emotions affect communication.
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.
