Woods is committed to the discovery of new ideas and advancements in order to improve outcomes for individuals and to advance treatments across the health and human services industry.
We do this by collecting and analyzing data and reviewing evidenced-informed programs and services in order to develop innovative approaches that help people live healthy and fulfilling lives.
The Woods National Research and 评价 Institute, led by Dr. 斯科特Spreat, has been developed to promote and conduct policy related research. Work is done both independently and collaboratively with other research organizations. Examples of recent projects include a study of wages and compensation for Direct Support Staff and a 15 year study of vocational engagement among persons with intellectual disability who live in community group homes.
除了进行研究, the mission of the Institute is to help inform decision-makers who have an impact on policy and legislation that affect the people served by Woods. 为此目的, the Institute has published 10 papers in 2017, delivered two conference presentations, and has twice given testimony before legislative committees. Such activities promise to improve outcomes for individuals and to advance treatments across the health and human services industry.
