Ombudsman Training

Training for ombudsman staff and volunteers is critical for maintaining an effective long-term care ombudsman program. Training curricula and methods are constantly being revised and re-evaluated to better address a state’s needs and provide current information. The National Long-Term Care Ombudsman Resource Center develops and collects materials and information that enhance and strengthen the training of paid and volunteer ombudsmen.

Materials included in this section have been either developed by the Center or have been shared with the Center by various state and local ombudsman programs.
