Onboarding New Staff

  • There is concern across the sites with turnover

  • Sudbury has a new therapist who has limited experience treating individuals with psychosis

  • Kim had a new staff member meet with Al, the staff member got an orientation to the project and it was very helpful

  • Sheila mentioned that differentiating the roles was difficult initially, as there are many different parts and it can be daunting to new staff members

  • She gives new staff members a high level glance of what all this is about, and presents info on NAVIGATE

  • Perhaps can include peer support component in core components


  • Want to stress that tracking referred patients should be quick and easy, there will be trial and error in trying to find the best process

  • Sheila mentioned that her team has a meeting every week, Dielle and Abanti join and update on how many research referrals are reviewed/recruited. Sheila also meets with her staff and gets a overview of who is asked about research on an Excel sheet.

  • Anne Marie does similar thing, she uses an Excel sheet for tracking, identifies the number of times people are asked and what the answer is (yes/no)

  • How do you manage not having multiple clinicians approach the same person?

    • This is orchestrated at weekly meetings, have a communication and updating process

    • Sudbury started with a care pathway and integrated NAVIGATE into it
