Program Description: Private pay is the fastest growing market in home care. As the population ages, the opportunity exists to expand your possibilities in serving new clients. Home care emphasizes choice, customer service and self-determination for consumers in independent living environments.

Unlicensed personnel work with individuals daily to complete a variety of tasks, including tasks that could be delegated, thus expanding the population of individuals who could be served safely in the home. The RN has an opportunity to work with an individual to make their choice, and control for delivery of services for those tasks that may be considered nursing tasks more readily available in order to assist families keep their loved ones at home.

I worked on the delegation rules as part of the Nurse Practice Advisory Committee to ensure they were re-crafted with Home Care and the population we serve in mind. Rachel Hammon, RN, BSN, TAHC&H Executive Director

In this webinar, you will learn what an agency needs to know about an unlicensed person performing a task that may be considered a nursing task, what the RN needs to know to practice safely and within the practice act, and the RNs role and responsibilities in both RN Delegation and Health Maintenance Activities. Expand your possibilities in serving new clients and take advantage of this education opportunity from Rachel Hammon, RN, BSN, who was on the Nurse Practice Advisory Committee that revised the nurse delegation rules.

Program Learning Outcome: Participants will actively engage in the learning activity and indicate an intent to change their practice by implementing the Texas Board of Nursing regulations governing delegation of nursing tasks to unlicensed personnel to promote patient safety and contribute to improved patient outcomes in the home care setting.
