Home Health Aide Skills and Documentation

  •   Webinar
  •   3/22/2018
  •   Jnon Griffin, RN, MHA, HCS-D, COS-C, HCS-H, HCS-C

In the final installment of the Clinical Documentation Series, our focus turns to the Aides.  Unlike many of the other disciplines who provide care in the home, Aides many times are present the most, but have the smallest amount of actual documentation to do.  However, there are skills that need to be developed by the Aide to enable them to work closely with their Supervisory nurse, and communicate what is happening with their patients.

SOCIAL WORKER: The Route to Quality Assessments

  •   Webinar

  •   Christina Nuqui, MSW

Home care agencies have become vital in ensuring that individuals can remain home safely and independently.  Social workers have consistently been the frontline workers in times of crisis and have always provided a social safety net to ensure that everyone, particularly the vulnerable in our society, has access to needed services and resources. Social workers play an important role in supporting their patients and their families. Patient care is not routine, and care coordination needs to meet those changing needs.

Many Home Health and Homecare agencies are seeing an increase in the amount of care provided by their Aides. Home Health Aides are an integral part of the care team and it is critical for them to be able to identify and report common disease processes that they may observe.  Recognizing the symptoms of these diseases is a very basic, yet important skill that Aides must learn.  This webinar will provide this education for two of the most common diseases in Homecare:  CHF and COPD.
