OPWDD Direct Care Employee Trust Survey

CHSR is working with the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) to examine the challenges faced by Direct Care employees working with clients with developmental disabilities.

Evaluation & Research

CHSR is conducting a mail and electronic worker survey and a series of worker focus groups to obtain the insights and perceptions of direct care staff. Both methods will focus on employee skills and support in dealing with safety issues facing their clients. CHSR will analyze and summarize survey and focus group data, highlighting key themes and providing recommendations based on findings.

CHSR, in partnership with the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD), is pleased to announce the release of the study The Coordinated Assessment System (CAS): Validating the CAS in New York State.
