Grand View Assisted Living Nutrition Series - A Staff Training Program
PRODUCT: Five Interactive CD-ROMs and Five Program Workbooks
GOAL: The overall, long term goal of our program is to improve the quality of care for persons residing in assisted living facilities by providing effective and affordable education to assisted living caregivers. The training program is in an innovative, interactive, multimedia computer-based training format appealing to a variety of learning styles. It is designed to encompass a primary domain of practice in assisted living and the program includes training modules for elderly care nutrition. INNOVATIVE FEATURE: Computer-based training (CBT) presents the learner with some choices and is a step toward individualized training. The advantages of Computer-based training (CBT) are as follows: 1. Computer technology allows information to be delivered to learners in a variety of methods, which enhances learning and appeals to individual learning styles. 2. CBT can reduce training costs by 30-50 percent. 3. Learners using CBT are able to complete the training 30 percent faster than traditional methods. 4. CBT allows learners to receive immediate feedback regarding their work, which contributes to their independence. 5. Computer technologies allow real world environments to be simulated to provide instruction that would otherwise require an actual “hands-on” performance. Simulations have been found to be very effective in training individuals to manage social or sensitive problems. 6. CBT is an effective mode of training for assisted living facilities because the training can be done on-site and does not require travel or missed production hours. ACCOUNTABLE AND ENGAGING LEARNING EXPERIENCE There are pre- and post-chapter tests to qualify the participant in achieving the successful completion of the program. CareTrends will acknowledge the participant with a Certificate of Completion of the complete Grand View Assisted Living Nutrition Series.
