SNAP stands for
Superior Nurse Aide Performance!

In-home aides play a vital role in serving the nations ill, disabled, and aging populations. Often having the most contact with patients, these individuals are usually closer to their patients than any other home care discipline making them uniquely qualified to meet the challenges they face. And, no matter what programs your aides work in, an investment in their learning pays off in quality care and better risk management for your agency. As you know, Medicare Conditions of Participation require that home health aides accrue a minimum of twelve hours of training every twelve months. Other federal and state laws also mandate training. These requirements may be difficult to achieve. The Caring Connection audio conferences and aide training modules are an efficient, effective way to provide your aides with the knowledge they need while keeping your agency training costs low!

What is in a SNAP Packet?

In each SNAP Packet you will find three unique aide training audio conferences on CDROM (each one is about 1 hour in length) with learning objectives. You will also receive accompanying handouts, a post-test with answer sheet and a certificate of completion template. Choose from among four different packets to meet your specific aide learning needs! Buy all four - take advantage of significant savings - and you have 12 packaged aide inservices ready for the year ahead!

Ideas on how to use the SNAP Packets! In-home aides may individually listen to the audio and complete the post test or you may present the audio conference in a group setting in your agency.
