The overall aim of the two-year training program is to educate home-care aides so that they can help their clients identify patient-centered questions and issues for research that have the potential to improve quality of life. A related secondary aim is to build home-care aide capacity for partnering with researchers and health professionals on patient-centered outcomes research. Our long term objectives are fourfold. First, to strengthen the partnership between home-care aides and their home-bound clients through shared understanding of the health issues that matter to the client; second, to build the capacity of both parties to engage in the meaningful communication and report of data to inform research; third, to evaluate the impact of participation on both home-care aides and clients; and fourth, to develop a feasible and practical strategy for augmenting usual care services in agencies delivering Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services through the translation of findings.
