Home and Personal Support Workers Encouraged to Participate in Provincial Survey

The Department of Health and Community Services in collaboration with the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information (NLCHI) is seeking input from home and personal support workers through an online survey to better understand their training and educational needs. Results of the survey will help to inform the development of an educational strategy, a recommendation of the Provincial Home Support Program Review.

Completed by Deloitte, the Provincial Home Support Program Review identified a 25 Point Plan to improve the program. Work on the 25 Point Plan is well underway. Supporting training and educational opportunities for home and personal support workers will contribute to improved recruitment and retention of the workforce and lead to improved delivery of services.

People are encouraged to participate in the survey by visiting http://www.research.net/r/Home_PersonalSupport. People who want to complete the survey by telephone or who have questions may contact Melody Sorenson, Program Evaluation Consultant with NLCHI, at 1-833-752-6182 or melody.sorenson@nlchi.nl.ca.

The deadline is December 7, 2018.

This initiative delivers on commitments in The Way Forward to deliver better services and better outcomes for residents. The Way Forward outlines all actions the Provincial Government is taking to achieve a strong, diversified province with a high standard of living, and can be viewed at thewayforward.gov.nl.ca.

Quotes
“Home care and personal support workers play an important role in providing care to individuals to remain in their own homes and communities. We look forward to hearing their views about what is needed from a training and educational perspective.”
