Respite Service Providers Training Needs
Evaluation of the Lifespan Respite Care Program
IRB Protocol No.: X091222018
Explanation of Procedures: Greetings! This assessment will gather information about training needs of respite service providers in Alabama. Respite is temporary relief for caregivers of individuals with disabilities or chronic illness. Short-term respite may be provided within or outside of the home lasting less than one day or as many as several days. Respite care may be planned or a response to urgent situations. The purpose is to allow those with disabilities and chronic illness to continue to live in the community.
The Alabama Lifespan Respite Care Coalition asked evaluators from the UAB Center for Educational Accountability to assess training needs among respite providers in Alabama. The Coalition will use the information you provide to plan improvements to lifespan respite services.
