Alaska Long Term Care Community Forum August 2008

Not exactly community-involvement but at least comments are possible on the draft.

Long Term Care Community Forum for Stakeholders of State Long Term Health Care Services and Supports [sic]

The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) has hired HCBS Strategies Inc. to develop recommendations for improving the long term care services it provides to older adults and individuals with disabilities of all ages. As part of developing these recommendations we have obtained feedback from stakeholders such as consumers and their families, providers and direct care workers. We are holding Community Forums to gain reactions from stakeholders on our draft set of recommendations before they are finalized. All those interested may attend.

    I love the modern terms, like ‘stakeholders’. Seem to sort of, de-personalise things, don’t you think? I suppose, after all, we are just another item in the budget.

    Good point. I think you are on to something. As a budget item, at least one person is hired (but not an expert so they come cheap) and usually a telephone number (also cheap).

    Tech support has worked in the public involvement field and tracked some of the usage, Getting Results from Your Experts. I like her definition that “stakeholder” means they hold the stake and the public gets stucked.

    The problem now is that most agencies which use the term do not understand public involvement and use the term because it is widespread and seemingly acceptable. So, even if an agency is interested in working with communities, they don’t know how else to do so and in using the standard “stake” end up doing more harm than good.

    Vuee, Vuee, We need to hear MORE from you now about the way Alaska has come into our consciousness via your governor–the believer in “stakeholders.”
