Care aides have high levels of burnout - but there is good news

Our study found that care aides in nursing homes (long term care homes) experienced high levels of burnout but continued to find meaning in their jobs. The study, led by TREC trainee Stephanie Chamberlain, was recently published in the International Journal of Nursing Studies. We explored how factors, like the work environment, influence burnout in care aides working in nursing homes in Western Canada.

New Edmonton Zone Regional Lead: Dr Adrian Wagg

Dr Adrian Wagg is the new TREC Regional Lead Investigator for the Edmonton Zone (what we used to call the Alberta North Region). Adrian has been involved with TREC for many years. He is also the principal investigator of TREC's SCOPE project.

Say hello to Kirstie our

New Edmonton Zone Regional Coordinator

We are excited to welcome Kirstie McDermott as the new regional coordinator for the Edmonton Zone. Kristie has a Master's in neuroscience and has an interest in translational ageing research and longitudinal data collection. When she is not in the office you'll find her on the slopes skiing, on the links playing golf, or on the courts playing squash.

Ready, set, collect!

The TREC Measurement System (TMS) project began Wave 2 of data collection on May 1 and will continue until the end of 2017. The excitement is palpable at TREC HQ here in Edmonton! As part of the preparations, an intensive two day Training School was held April 4th and 5th. At the Training School, TREC trained 28 enthusiastic data collectors who are interviewing long term care staff in Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia.

Dr Maryam Nesari is

TREC's newest postdoctoral fellow

Dr Maryam Nesari recently settled into her new office in Edmonton as TREC's newest postdoctoral fellow. She completed her PhD in March and has wasted no time in joining TREC's SALTY project! Maryam's clinical background is in cardiology and her research interests are to improve the quality of life of adults living with multiple chronic diseases. For her postdoctoral work she is working on a knowledge translation project to develop quality measures to monitor the trajectory of modifiable symptom burden and potentially inappropriate care practices at the end of life in long term care.
