  Title “Tell someone who cares” -- participatory action research of motivation and workplace engagement among caregivers in aged residential care, New Zealand Type Book Whole
  Year 2019 Publication Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages 180 p.

  Abstract Aims to understand the factors that encourage motivation and engagement of caregivers who are relatively poorly paid, with limited training, but who are required to provide personal care to an increasingly frail population. Undertakes an initial exploratory study, with participants from four rural aged-residential care (ARC) facilities, to identify three key themes that influence caregiver motivation. Subsequently develops these initial themes, within a 42-bed facility, to explore how to encourage caregiver motivation. Bases the four-step process on Lewinâs cycle: plan, act, observe, and reflect. Establishes an advisory group of caregivers who develop a nine-point action plan, accepted by management and implemented in the facility.
