This course provides an opportunity to analyze the diverse social, physical, emotional, cultural, spiritual, and developmental care needs of vulnerable populations found in licensed community care facilities. Learners will identify organizational systems and community partners that support these populations. Challenges and barriers that may impact the persons in care are discussed. Learners will differentiate appropriate programming and care standards for vulnerable populations and have an opportunity to evaluate childcare and residential care plans. All topics are presented from the perspective of risk assessment and sound decision-making that will allow licensing officers to promote the optimal health, safety, and dignity of persons in care, and to work within the broader health care system.
