What is INFORM?
The Improving Nursing Home Care through Feedback on PerfoRMance Data (INFORM) study seeks to demonstrate how managers of care units can improve performance by improving modifiable elements of their care units. In the INFORM intervention, we use varying degrees of feedback in the form of workshops. In the workshops, the INFORM team works with care managers in order to engage them in goal setting, ongoing learning and instituting positive changes in their facilities.
We have completed delivery of the INFORM intervention, including collecting comprehensive quantitative and qualitative process data from participants. Once the next wave of TMS data is collected, we can determine if there were changes in formal interaction over time and if these varied by study arm.
