Relias sent out a Retention Toolkit in August of 2018. See below for that email and resources:

Healthcare’s Workforce Challenge

Demand for healthcare services is increasing faster than the supply of healthcare workers, including nurses, CNAs, and medical assistants. Staff shortages combined with high turnover rates are resulting in a need to take practical steps to hire and retain your best staff.

Solve Your Turnover Challenges

To help healthcare organizations reduce turnover, we have put together a
Retention Toolkit containing white papers, webinars, guides, and more!

This toolkit contains best practices on:
• Improving hiring using assessments

Lessons From the Field: Promising Interprofessional Collaboration Practices

Posted: October 6, 2015

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), in their commitment to building a Culture of Health in America, initiated a project entitled Identifying and Spreading Practices to Enable Effective Interprofessional Collaboration to better understand the role of interprofessional collaboration in advancing a Culture of Health. The results of this work are published in Lessons From the Field: Promising Interprofessional Collaboration Practices.

The Issue
Interprofessional collaboration between and among physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and other clinical and administrative professionals is playing an increasingly important role in the future of health care delivery.

Key Findings
The following practices were identified as successful models:

  • Put patients first.
  • Demonstrate leadership commitment to interprofessional collaboration as an organizational priority through words and actions.
  • Create a level playing field that enables team members to work at the top of their license, know their roles, and understand the value they contribute.
  • Cultivate effective team communication.
  • Explore the use of organizational structure to hardwire interprofessional practice.

Recruitment Resources for Community Health Centers

Posted: September 28, 2015

CCALAC is pleased to present our newest resource, A Guide to Loan Repayment and Scholarship Programs for Community Health Centers. This resource guide was created to provide community health centers with access to information on the various loan repayment and scholarship programs offered for health center staff offered at the federal, state and local levels.

CCALAC recognizes that the salary disparity among individuals working at community health centers can often be a barrier to recruitment and retention of qualified staff. Loan forgiveness and scholarship programs are one way of offsetting income loss. These programs can be a powerful recruiting tool. In addition, these programs can also serve to enhance the incumbent workforce as employees continue their education and career advancement.

We hope this guide serves as a valuable tool for the recruitment and retention for your clinic staff. If you have any questions about the resource guide, please contact Erin Sricharoon.
