Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

This session will present the results of a 2-year improvement project to improve pain management for LTC residents among 12 senior care organizations in Canada and the United States. Beginning in January 2014, the Seniors Quality Leap Initiative (SQLI) initiated an improvement project to improve site and average performance on a number of quality improvement measures related to pain in LTC. Using the evidence-based InterRAI Clinical Assessment Protocol (CAP) for pain as well as the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) best practice guideline for pain, the SQLI developed a method to conduct an in-depth gap analysis based on best practice to develop an improvement plan based on individual gaps. This novel, collaborative approach is the first of its kind in the long-term care sector.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the organizational based interventions that have shown to lead to significant improvement in quality measures related to pain in LTC in both Canada and the US. 
  2. Describe the best practice approaches to pain management in post-acute and LTC, 
  3. Describe the elements of the gap analysis and how it can be applied other quality improvement projects in the LTC sector. 
  4. Identify strategies, resources and supports necessary to drive change and success and the impact of this quality improvement approach on LTC policy.
