NAVIGATE International Conference 2022


Given that EPI services have rapidly transitioned to virtual care with little evidence to guide virtual delivery of EPI, a group from CAMH with many members from the EPI-SET team, including youth and family advisors, have been studying the implementation of NAVIGATE delivered virtually ("e-NAVIGATE"). 

The e-NAVIGATE team held their first annual meeting in February 2022 to share successes over the past year, including:

  • Analyzing responses from Qualitative Interviews with patients and family members to learn more about their experiences of receiving virtual care;

  • Analyzing responses from a Focus Group with clinicians to understand their experiences of delivering virtual care;

  • Exploring facilitators and barriers associated with delivering virtual care through the Consolidated Framework for Implementation Research (CFIR) Interviews;

  • Sharing results from fidelity assessments, which examined adherence to EPI standards following the transition to virtual care compared with in-person delivery;

  • Examining data from the Virtual Client Experience Surveys and Virtual Provider Experience Surveys to understand the overall satisfaction and acceptability of virtual care; and

  • Extracting data from electronic medical records to examine the factors that affect service engagement, including healthy equity factors, within a virtual setting.

The study team is continuing to develop knowledge translation strategies, which will include conference presentations, informational webinars for patients, families, and providers, and a manual outlining how to deliver NAVIGATE virtually.


Study results will be prepared over the next several months to publish in peer-reviewed journals.
