New competency model will benefit long-term care industry

From healthcarefinancenews.com: The Department of Labor has released a competency model for the long-term care industry that officials hope will solve long-standing issues of low wages and a high staff turnover rate.

“The models are an excellent guide to leaders at the operational level for both employee recruitment and identification of continuing education needs,” said Matthew Maupin, administrator of Lutheran Life Villages in Fort Wayne, Ind., and a blogger on the long-term care industry. “Often as leaders we focus solely on technical competencies without consideration of broader foundational principles, leading to increased training costs and ultimately employee turnover. The models support professional development programs geared towards customer service, communication and utilization of technological efficiencies, which is precisely what the long-term care workforce needs for the upcoming influx of Baby Boomers requiring care.”
