TREC 2.0 wave 3 data collection

TMS data collectors are in the field

We have launched the next wave of data collection of our TREC Measurement System (TMS) project. Our data collectors are in the field surveying care providers in select nursing homes in British Columbia, Alberta, and Manitoba. Prior to each wave, we hire data collectors in all regions and train them at our "interview schools." During the two day interview schools, data collectors learn and perfect their interviewing skills using the TREC Survey. Click below to check out the photo albums from the schools. We thank the data collectors in advance for all their effort and hard work.

Dr Estabrooks secures

Funding for database portal 

We are delighted to announce that Dr Estabrooks has secured funding through a new John R. Evans Leaders Fund Grant, to create the Portal for Elder Research, Care and Innovation (PERCI). PERCI is a unique longitudinal long term care database that links administrative and primary data at both the unit and facility levels. This groundbreaking portal will allow researchers to tap the vast wealth of data our team has collected over the past decade to design studies specifically tailored to address quality gaps, spread and scale up potential solutions, and evaluate the capacity of health systems to adopt them. We are excited to begin our work once we apply for and secure the Alberta portion of the funding.
