As part of our TREC Measurement System (TMS) project we feed back our research findings to our participants after each wave of data collection. We fed back results in May and June by organizing feedback summits and invited participants to attend. As TMS wraps up for the season, our SCOPE project is rolling out. SCOPE also organized meetings for participants to introduce them to the study and outline how they will participate.
TMS Feedback Activities
On June 8, we successfully completed the sixth and final regional summit in Edmonton for Wave 4 of TREC data collection. This was part of our feedback summits from May to June during which we feed back research findings to our research participants. Overall, more than 180 facility management, front line staff, and regional decision makers attended the summits from across all 5 regions in which our research is active. Our Regional Coordinators will continue the feedback process with presentations of some key findings to front line staff in all 94 TREC facilities.
SCOPE Learning Congress
The first SCOPE Learning Congress took place in each of four regions in May. The learning congresses are meetings that are part of the SCOPE study. We gather with our research participants to introduce them to the study and outline how they will be participating.
A total of 108 health care aides and their team sponsors attended a two day congress in Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, or Edmonton. The congress introduced attendees to the Model for Quality Improvement they will use in the SCOPE trial. The meetings focused on preparing the teams to initiate a quality improvement project on their unit in one of three areas:
- Pain management
- Improving mobility
- Reducing responsive behaviours
