careLearning is a nonprofit organization formed more than a decade ago which is owned and operated by more than 40 state hospital associations including NJHA. These associations work in partnership to offer a comprehensive workforce education management solution to member hospitals with an affordable price and convenient online platform.

Over 280 hospitals and healthcare organizations nationally use careLearning for their employee education needs. Virtually all of these organizations offer the On-Line Health and Safety Compliance Training Series to their employees to meet their Joint Commission/OSHA requirements.

careLearning provides:

  • A powerful underlying database which contains data captured from employee education activity. The database resides at the hospital location and not at careLearning.  Participating hospitals maintain ownership and control of this data.
  • Capability to track online activity as well as in-service education sessions.
  • A utility which easily updates the database with changes in payroll so new staff additions and deletions are accurately updated within the database.
  • The ability to develop and publish “private courses” using hospital-specific content. Virtually all participating hospitals utilize this money-saving benefit.  
  • Ready access with no long-term contractual commitments.

On March 3, 2021, New Jersey enacted legislation to establish certain requirements concerning the rights of lesbian gay, bisexual, transgender, undesignated/non-binary, questioning, queer, intersex, and HIV-positive residents of long-term care facilities. One component of the statute requires education that will help New Jersey ensure all long-term senior care facilities in the state will be ready to deliver quality LGBTQ-affirming care. Facilities are required to designate two employees to receive this education by Sept. 2021. One employee must represent management and one must represent management and one must represent direct care staff. All staff will be required to receive education within one year, i.e., by March 2022 and every two years thereafter.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) seniors are among the most vulnerable elder populations, especially when it comes to ensuring their access to LGBTQ-affirming health care services and safe, welcoming housing and care opportunities. Due to having experienced decades of societal stigma, prejudice and fear, they are less likely to have current close family ties for support and more likely to face institutionally-embedded discrimination mechanisms in housing, while facing an array of other unique barriers that discrimination mechanisms in housing, while facing an array of other unique barriers that stand in the way of their enjoying a healthy and rewarding life as they continue to age.

• Be able to articulate the benefits for facilities to utilize LGBTSCH’s multi-stage LGBTQ sensitivity program TA assessment process to help them establish an LGBTQ affirming program that meets not only the requirements of S2545/A4288 but the needs of their LGBTQ+ older adult residents
