A program on complementary therapies for long-term care nursing assistants.

Abstract

Nursing assistants (NAs) receive insufficient support in the face of heavy workloads and challenging job demands. This article describes a course on complementary therapies (CTs) intended to improve NAs' quality of life by helping them plan, develop, implement, and evaluate CTs. Future studies may examine the impact, if any, such courses have on recruitment and retention.
