    This paper provides an updated review of the status of empirical findings, focusing on what
    has been learned between 1999 and 2003. The primary goal is to learn what initiatives
    have worked to reduce LTC direct care workforce recruitment and retention problems. A
    secondary goal is to provide empirically-based insights on the factors that contribute to
    recruitment and retention problems. This paper is intended to help policymakers,
    providers, worker and consumer groups, and researchers create a framework for future
    evidence-based policy, practice, and applied research initiatives to address LTC direct
    care workforce shortages.
