New Resource: Turnover Among Wraparound Care Coordinators

A new TA Network resource, written by staff from NWI and NWIC, provides an overview of the research done by NWI and NWIC on turnover among Wraparound care coordinators. Along with a summary of the need for the research and the process used to gather data from stakeholders in 39 states, the new resource includes stakeholders' views on the causes and impacts of turnover among this vital part of the Wraparound workforce, and potential remedies supervisors and service providers could implement to help minimize turnover.
