Iowa Direct Care Worker Advisory Council: Final Report
March 1, 2012
This report was delivered to the Iowa legislature by the Iowa Direct Care Worker Advisory Council in March 2012. It recommends several ways that Iowa could strengthen its direct care workforce in order to better meet the care needs of residents. For example, the report suggests implementing higher training standards as well as designing career pathways for direct care workers. These steps would reduce turnover and raise the quality of care in the state.
