Direct Support Workforce Survey: Providing Support During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Over the past 24 months, direct support workers have experienced high risks of infection, hardship and exhaustion. Many have become ill and lost loved ones. The voices of DSPs and frontline supervisors matter, now more than ever. Show them you care about their wellbeing by sharing this confidential survey. The University of Minnesota’s Institute on Community Integration, in partnership with the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals, developed this survey to better understand the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on direct support workers and identify the most effective ways to protect DSPs, frontline supervisors, and the people they support.

Please visit z.umn.edu/dsp-covid19-survey to complete the survey. The survey closes on July 22, 2022. 

Please forward this survey to the direct support workers that you employ, including paid family members. Their answers will be anonymous. National and state-specific results from the survey will be shared widely in September 2022. Three earlier surveys were conducted by ICI and NADSP and the results are available here. The new survey is for both direct support workers who completed an earlier survey and those who did not.

If you work in hospice as a care provider, Relias needs to hear from you!

Relias is seeking the experiences and perspectives of home and hospice health aides, personal care aides and CNAs, VN/LPNs, and RNs age 18 and older located in the US who care for home health patients.

They’re looking for answers to questions like: How did your education prepare you for practice? How have your responsibilities changed since the COVID-19 pandemic? What might impact your desire to leave your job?

This survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete, and your input will help Relias understand the needs and values of dedicated people just like you, working within this frequently overlooked and undervalued part of the healthcare system.

Participating in this study is 100% voluntary, confidential, and will have no bearing on your present or future roles whatsoever.

Are You an Advanced Practice Provider Serving Seriously Ill and Hospice Patients? Take the Survey!

In collaboration with 11 other organizations, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) has helped develop a survey to identify barriers in continuity of care for patients of Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) when they are admitted to hospice. It is anticipated that the results will provide data and anecdotal stories that can be used for advocacy to encourage passage of laws to allow APPs to sign the hospice Certification of Terminal Illness (CTI) and for Clinical Nurse Specialists to continue to follow their patients as primary care providers.

Participation in this 25-question survey is completely voluntary and you may change your mind at any time. There is a rare risk that some of the questions may make you uncomfortable, but you may skip questions you don’t want to answer. The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

If you are an APP who has referred a patient to hospice, we invite you to participate in completion of the research survey. No personal identification will be collected but as with any research survey, 100% confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. De-identified data will be shared with all 12 participating organizations and may be shared with future researchers. Completion of the survey implies consent to include your responses in the data analysis.

The survey will remain open from April 01, 2022, until April 15, 2022. If you have referred patients to hospice and you agree to participate you can access the survey using this link:  https://cwru.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3K6C0YgS51hnDBs
