Anyone who has ever been in charge, either formally or informally, has wondered about his or her ability to manage a diverse workforce. This can be especially challenging in a long-term care facility because managers are not only responsible for the people they supervise, they are also responsible for everyone under their team's care. Having diversity creates a positive workplace where no one feels they are at an advantage or disadvantage. This can lead to a happier, more productive staff. Most people think of gender, race, color, and religion when they think of diversity. Another type of diversity, though, is the generation to which someone belongs. Understanding how to manage these generational differences will help long-term care facility managers and supervisors have a more productive staff. This course discusses diversity, the various generations in the workforce today, and how to manage these generations.

Direct Support Professionals work as part of a team of health care providers. Because of this, they are involved in caring for patients, clients, or residents.  In order to effectively provide high quality care, everyone on the care team must have basic knowledge of how the human body is organized.  They must also be able to communicate with each other in an effective manner, without any miscommunications or misunderstandings.  For this reason, the medical industry uses very specific terms and words to describe the human body and medical treatment.  This course will give the Direct Support Professional a basic understanding of how the human body is organized and how it is described.

Eating is more than a basic human need; it's a social activity where people take a break from the daily grind to catch up with family and friends on the day's events or have a few minutes to relax. For some people, though, the joy of eating is diminished due to illnesses and digestive disorders. These people don't get to eat food like they did when they were younger or healthier. Many of them live in care facilities or resident homes where they have little control over their own diet. Direct Support Professionals should be aware of both normal and special diet needs to ensure their patients, clients, and residents receive the nutrition they require to be well. This course will teach current and future Direct Support Professionals about digestion, nutrition, and how a good diet helps their patients, clients, and residents become and stay healthy.
