We are seeking a Research Coordinator to provide research coordination and support to the “Improving Advance Care Planning for Frail Elderly Canadians – Community Based Sub-project”.
Advance care planning (ACP), has been proposed as one solution to improve patient-centred care and ensure values and preferences of patients are used to direct their health-care decisions. In addition, evidence demonstrates that CB-ACP (Community-Based Advance Care Planning) normalizes these conversations and raises awareness and engagement.
This project aims to integrate primary care with CB-ACP programs delivered by community-based non-profit organizations and to evaluate the feasibility, acceptability, and implementation of a Primary Care Clinician (PCC) “prescription/referral” process to CB-ACP interventions to increase ACP engagement and behaviours among patients and their Substitute Decision Makers (SDMs).
