Caregiver Workshops
UW-Oshkosh CCDET is planning a series of caregiver workshops in 2018. Available workshops include “Continuing Education for Caregivers: Training for Trainers” and “Investigating & Reporting Allegations of Misconduct in Nursing Homes and Non-Nursing Homes.” These workshops are partially subsidized by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Division of Quality Assurance (DQA).

Continuing Education for Caregivers: Training for Trainers:
4 NEW TOPICS!This full-day workshop at a cost of $150 per participant, including lunch, introduces participants to over 30 hours of Caregiver Project training materials designed to prevent abuse and neglect, improve professional caregiving skills, increase quality of resident care and meet continuing education requirements for caregivers in settings regulated by DQA.

By popular request, four new topics related to dementia care have been updated/added to the workshop curriculum. They incorporate recent research completed for the Wisconsin Dementia Care project. All four will be reviewed at the fall workshops. They include:

  • Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease: The Basics
  • Managing Crisis Situations in Dementia Care
  • Responding to Challenging Situations
  • Compassionate Care and Communication Techniques

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to train direct caregivers and other staff in their own facilities.

Investigating & Reporting Allegations of Misconduct (for DQA-regulated facilities):
This half-day workshop at a cost of $120 per participant will help participants identify the key components of conducting internal investigations into allegations of abuse, neglect and misappropriation.
