August 23, 2012
Annals of Long-Term Care Vol. 20, No. 8 – American Geriatrics Society
Examines the public policies that are affecting the direct-care workforce, and offers predictions of future workforce-related policies. For example, the authors predict that the “battle ground for where policy will be shaped” will move away from federal and state legislatures and toward managed-care systems. The authors conclude that work must be done to fight budget cuts that harm the workforce and restrict services for elders and people with disabilities.
