When an aging parent or relative needs their help, family members are often thrust into a caregiving role that they’re not equipped to handle with their existing knowledge or skills. The more you can support them with easy-to-understand educational materials and guidance, while demonstrating how your services can ease their burden, the better your opportunity to connect with this vital audience sooner. This webinar will cover how to best leverage your digital presence and technology platforms to effectively reach family caregivers, convert them into clients, train and support them, and sustain stronger brand loyalty.

Learning objectives:

  • Effectively targeting and engaging family caregivers through digital advertising
  • Best practices for creating online educational support resources
  • Leveraging technologies that can deepen engagement and communication

Building Capacity in the Direct Service Workforce: Moving Forward from the Summit

On April 28, 2021, in follow-up to their December Summit, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) hosted a webinar entitled “Building Capacity in the Direct Service Workforce: Moving Forward from the Summit.”

The session focused on three key subject areas including:

  • Person-Centered Practice- Delivering Quality Supports People Want
  • Coordinating Care Across Systems and Settings
  • Professional Development- Building Key Competencies

It is encouraging that CMS is showing its commitment to the direct service workforce and is actively looking for insight and collaboration across sectors to address the existing workforce challenges. The conversation and participation at this webinar session was lively and many representatives from various organizations and states were sharing their perspectives on opportunities but also discussing innovative solutions. 

Overview and resources shared from the session can be found HERE.

CMS plans on extending invitations in the near future to state Medicaid agencies to participate in a learning collaborative aimed at discussing and developing new strategies for addressing direct service worker issues. You can ask for more information by emailing HCBS-learning@lewin.com

CMS Webinar: Building Capacity in the Direct Service Workforce: Moving Forward From the Summit

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a webinar to advance learning and share recommendations from the intensive on Quality Jobs Equal Quality Care: Building Capacity in the Direct Care Workforce that was held at ADvancing States’ Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Conference on December 3, 2020.

The direct service workforce (DSW) plays a key role in efforts to rebalance long-term services and supports systems from institutional to community-based services. Direct service workers provide essential support for many people, contribute to overall health care quality, and promote community inclusion and independence.

Many stakeholders can help to build the capacity of the DSW, but state Medicaid agencies are uniquely positioned to lead changes. This webinar will highlight capacity building strategies shared by states during the HCBS Conference intensive. The webinar is open to the public and will focus on strategies for state Medicaid agencies, state agency partners, managed care plans, and HCBS providers.

By the end of this interactive webinar, participants will:

  1. Learn more about DSW challenges, approaches, and promising practices related to providing person-centered care, coordinating care across settings and systems, and encouraging professional development.
  2. Hear directly from state Medicaid agencies about promising practices supporting capacity building in the DSW.
  3. Provide feedback through interactive polling and discussion on the recommendations identified by participants of the HCBS Conference intensive.
  4. Find out more about an upcoming learning collaborative and other future DSW learning opportunities for state Medicaid agencies.
