The Role of State Policy in Developing the Long-Term Care Workforce (2008)
The article examines the role of state policy in developing the long-term care workforce. Authors Natasha Bryant and Robyn Stone argue that, because states regulate and fund long-term care, set the training and educational standards for the long-term care workforce, and control the Workforce Investment Act funds often used to train direct care workers, states then have the potential to develop policy and make the administrative and regulatory changes required to reform and enhance the long-term care workforce. The article describes the importance of the long-term care workforce and reviews related major state policy efforts.
