Continuity across transitions in care: What do older adults tell us?

There can be large gaps in care for older adults and their family caregivers during transitions from hospital to home or primary care. Join us to hear from Isobel Mackenzie, BC’s Seniors Advocate, and Chris Graham, the CEO of the Picker Institute Europe, about what they have learned from older adults. Rick Sawatzky, Canada Research Chair in Person-Centred Outcomes, will introduce both speakers.

In this session you will learn about the art and science of obtaining and using information collected directly from patients and their family caregivers aimed at improving the continuity and quality of care for older adults during these transitions.

For those who are unable to attend in person, webinar access is available. Tickets are limited; please RSVP via Eventbrite. Click here to download the event poster.

Work in Progress Seminar: Dr. Nick Bansback
Nov 22 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Abstract: Patients are increasingly being asked to complete Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) to describe their health. Currently, the predominant utilization of PROMs data is at the system level through the analysis of aggregate data and comparing outcomes across providers. While this can benefit patients indirectly over time, there is less utilization of PROMs at the clinical decision-making level. Opportunities to use PROMs data include: (1) comparing individual’s outcomes to others, (2) understanding what outcomes patients might expect in the future, and (3) looking at how outcomes have changed over time. This presentation will describe an ongoing study that is using these approaches to inform patients and their surgeon considering whether to undergo knee arthroplasty. The wider implication of this work beyond the clinical context, towards encouraging a learning health care system, will be discussed. Open source software that enables clinicians and researchers to implement these approaches will be demonstrated.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.
