Project Overview

The UW Oshkosh Center for Career Development (CCDET) has expanded the Caregiver Project's focus on abuse/neglect prevention by adding new training modules on required continuing education topics. New topics for 2013 include Resident Rights, Standard Precautions: A Focus on Hand Hygiene and Fire Safety. Additional topics will be introduced as they become available.

CCDET continues to partner with the Division of Quality Assurance (DQA) to offer a limited number of workshops in Fall 2013 at a cost partially subsidized by the Division. There is no limit of participants per agency. These workshops include:
