Measuring Worker Turnover in Long-Term Care: Lessons From the Better Jobs Better Care Demonstration
06/20/2008 | 401 Requests *
Policy makers and provider organizations continue to struggle to reduce turnover among direct-care workers in the long-term care field. Unfortunately, data elements used to measure turnover vary widely between programs and make it difficult to understand and counteract this problem. The authors discuss these challenges by drawing on their experience with the turnover tracking system of the Better Jobs Better Care Demonstration.
