Protecting Vulnerable Adults From Maltreatment
Maltreatment of vulnerable adults has been a topic of much discussion in the media and at the Legislature. Care Providers of Minnesota continues its efforts to provide members resources to prevent maltreatment with this full-day workshop. Care Providers of Minnesota has commissioned Martin-McAllister Consulting Psychologists—industrial psychologists—to examine the long-term care profession to gain insight on hiring and training staff and creating a positive work atmosphere.
Identifying and developing excellence in people
There is no getting around it: long-term care thrives on people-power—leaders, critical-thinkers, listeners, and caregivers. But how do you recognize them? How can you train them? Whether you are looking to hire new talent, develop existing talent or improve the dynamics of your team, you want to ensure that your time and energy are spent on the right people at the right time.
Gain insight and guidance specific to long-term care providers:
Screening potential employees
Watching for red flags
Developing current staff
Creating an open and honest work environment
Conducting effective investigations
Addressing drug diversion—prevention techniques and responses when it happens
Using data to your advantage
