October 9th - 26th
The TREC Measurement System (TMS) is a longitudinal observational study of front line staff in nursing homes that uses survey data and resident RAI-MDS 2.0 data to examine the connection between context (work environment), the use of best practices, and resident outcomes. TREC hosted six successful regional summits in Alberta, British Columbia, and Manitoba. The purpose of the summits was to share findings from Wave 1 of data collection with regional nursing home representatives, decision makers, and other key stakeholders. Over 200 participants attended the summits. Attendees were highly engaged in the round-table discussions, sharing their ideas and strategies to improve the quality of care for long-term care residents.
