Washington State Eldercare Workforce Assessment
Patricia is the co-investigator, in partnership with the William D. Ruckelshaus Center, on this $50,000 project to examine eldercare workforce capacity in Washington State. Phase I involves developing a baseline understanding of eldercare workforce capacity concerns within the state, and assessing stakeholder interest in creating a statewide coalition to address eldercare workforce issues. [1/2013-6/2014]
Partnership to Reduce Psychiatric Rehospitalization
Patricia is the principle investigator on this $100,000 subcontract with the Washington Community Mental Health Council. The work includes developing, implementing, and facilitating a 14-month curriculum for community mental health agencies to support them in creating, testing, and evaluating quality improvement interventions to reduce psychiatric rehospitalization among Medicaid-enrolled adults. The project is funded by the WA State Department of Social and Health Services through a DHHS Adult Medicaid Quality grant. Additional partners include the WA State Health Care Authority and Rutgers University. [5/2013-12/2014]
