Improving Outcomes with a Culture of Kindness – Wednesday, January 25, 2017
There is growing frustration with programs that promise to improve outcomes, but are not improving patient satisfaction ratings. Researchers have shown that intelligent kindness and increased staff attention to the patient leads to stronger patient connections and higher patient satisfaction. These connections increase trust and in turn lead to improved clinical outcomes. Learn how a “culture of kindness” produces improved outcomes and higher patient satisfaction in an organization with higher staff satisfaction & retention.
1. Define the substance, roles and impact of “IQ, Emotional Intelligence and the Kindness Quotient” in improving outcomes and patient satisfaction
2. Identify the role of leadership in developing and fostering a culture of kindness in the workplace.
Workforce R&R- Improved Recruitment and Retention in Today’s Marketplace – Thursday, February 9, 2017
Home Health and Hospice providers are losing clinical staff at rates of 15-20% every year. This revolving door incurs more costs to recruit and train qualified clinicians, leaving little time and money to focus on retention. Recruitment and retention are not “one size fits all” and neither is longer term staff education and support. Learn how to create an effective orientation model that will attract (and keep) the staff you need. Explore two pathways for orientation and an ongoing process of staff education and support that encourages staff development and promotes satisfaction.
1. Identify approaches to recruitment, staff satisfaction for retention
2. Define two orientation models for new & experienced clinicians
3. Identify a method of ongoing education and support for improved retention

1. Define patient centered, patient self-management care and identify how it will impact both employee and patient satisfaction.
2. Learn how to implement the common tenants of the Naylor, Coleman and Sutter models of care for your agency.
