Quality Work, Quality Care
The Conference will be held at the FHI 360 Conference Center, April 2, 2012, in Washington, D.C. It will provide a forum for engaging with stakeholders, leaders, and funders in the home care sector, to share lessons learned from their experiences and investments, and to identify safety and health priorities—of both the worker and the consumer.
Who is the conference for?
Stakeholders in the field of home care. This includes consumers, representatives from trade associations, not-for-profits, public and private providers, unions that represent home care workers/service providers, consumer organizations, policy makers, researchers, economists, staff development/trainers, federal/state/local government representatives, family members and anyone with an interest in the current state of and future trends in home care.
The conference will highlight the relationship between quality work and quality care, with an emphasis on how the caregiver’s safety, health and well being impacts the quality of work, and therefore the delivery of quality care. The conference will emphasize the stakeholders’ role in addressing physical, psychosocial, and environmental aspects of home care work. The conference will promote the Quality Work, Quality Care relationship as a centerpiece to policies, work practices, educational programs, and research.
