A bill that passed Wednesday on the state level is being touted as a potential blueprint to mitigating home-based care workforce shortages nationwide.
In Frankfort, Kentucky on Wednesday, Gov. Andy Beshear passed the Kentucky Healthcare Workforce Development Act, legislation that aims to combat workforce shortages by building a public-private partnership that is designed to increase workforce training and education initiatives.
Joanne Cunningham, the CEO of the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare (PQHH), told Home Health Care News this week that the bill felt different than others, in a positive way.
