The days of merely training for state compliance are over; in 2021, care professional training is one of the most essential functions in a home care agency.

As we’re faced with the worst care professional shortage in history, the right training programs can not only guarantee great care for clients; they can power recruitment/retention, alleviate staffing challenges, and help agencies stand out to both potential clients and care professionals.

In this free, full-day event, Home Care Pulse’s training experts—together with other top experts we’ve gathered from around the industry—will talk about the most important topics in training and give you the knowledge you need to use it as a competitive advantage.

Come if you’re ready to learn how you can turn good care teams into great care teams—and use your training to raise the bar for every part of your agency.

We’ll address topics like:

  • What’s changing in training, and what you can do to provide the best training around

  • How to use training programs to power care professional recruitment and retention

  • How to get care professionals to embrace new training programs
