SCOPE set to launch

In Alberta and British Columbia

SCOPE is a randomized controlled trial studying the effect of a quality improvement intervention which empowers Care Aides to take the lead on improvement strategies within their nursing home. Currently we are ramping up activities for our SCOPE project launch. We just hired the Trial and Quality Coordinators and are still on the lookout for two Quality Advisors–one for Alberta and one for British Columbia. In Western Canada we will recruit more than 30 teams from Fraser Health, Interior Health, and the Edmonton and Calgary Zones. With the bigger geographical scope, we are planning to hold two congresses in each province. The first Learning Congress will be in January 2018.

Jim Mann is the new Co-Chair of VOICES

TREC's citizen engagement committee

The Voices of Individuals and Family and Friend Care Givers Educating Us (VOICES) advisory committee provides input relevant to and based on resident/family member/caregiver experience. This helps ensure that individuals most affected by research outcomes have a meaningful voice in the TREC research program.

We flew to San Francisco for the
