The Aide’s Role in Customer Service & Patient-Centered Care
Thursday, December 12, 2013
3:00 to 4:00 p.m. EST
2:00 to 3:00 p.m. CST
Description: Health care providers recognize that greater client satisfaction leads to both better agency financial outcomes and clinical outcomes. Patient centered care actively involves the client in both planning and implementing care and takes into account not only what the client needs, but also what they want. Customer service and patient centered care are linked in focusing on the client as the center of the care. This workshop will cover what it means to provide person centered care and how that can lead to greater client satisfaction and better agency outcomes.
Presenter: Kathie Smith, RN. In addition to several management level positions in home care, Ms. Smith has experience as a Home Health Nurse Aide Supervisor. Prior to working for AHHC, she was the Manager of Home Care Initiatives for the NC Division of Medical Assistance where she assisted in overseeing home care policy.

Mrs. Smith is certified in integrated chronic disease management, is a master training in Coaching Supervision and serves on the North Carolina management team for the Personal and Home Care Aide State Training (PHCAST) grant which has developed Home Care Specialty training for NC aides.
