CFIR contract executed, currently waiting for SickKids REB approval
Interviews to start in the new year
Last session on Peer Support work was highlight engaging, thanks to Sara Traore, our family advisors, and all who attended!
This Friday Dec 4th on CBT, with case presentation by North Bay
Dec 18th on Motivational Interviewing/substance use, case presentation by Durham
Jan 8th: first session of new year on Mood Disorders, case presentation by Sudbury
We are really appreciative of everyone that attends the ECHO sessions
Sessions were moved to Friday’s to accommodate scheduling for sites
ECHOs support the education/capacity-building component and are crucial component of the community of practice
We want to check-in with sites if there are any difficulties attending the Friday sessions
Thunder Bay and North Bay have confirmed the Friday time works well
We also want to hear about your needs and feedback; we do get great feedback from the surveys but are always open to more
Continue to get high volume of referrals each month
Have a waitlist of about 6 patients
Family Group is going very well and will continue until January
Continue to deliver Navigate, offer research, and are swamped with new referrals.
Continue to struggle with finding somewhere appropriate to discharge our clients to once they are finished three years.
As a result, we keep the clients for longer and our clinicians case-loads are getting too high again.
Case load is 28, 2 new referrals coming in.
Clinicians have no challenges with NAV, things are going well.
Still offering option of meeting face-to-face.
Appointments seem to be mostly virtual still.
3 to 4 discharges have been connected to other service providers.
Implementation is moving toward maintenance: we’ve created a client ‘Wellness Plan’ that identifies goals and the plan to attain these goals.
This Word document is embedded in our Excel Spread Sheet and is reviewed at our huddles. It is also provided to the client.
Navigate huddles are now three times per week (from one time per week).
More than 50% of our clients are now Navigators
6 clients are participating in research (maybe more now as we referred recently)
All clinicians are finding their stride and loving it!
6 research referrals, are implementing NAV and have completed Fidelity process and readiness surveys so
Average of 4-5 referrals per week
The second round of Fidelity assessments will occur 1 year after each site implemented NAV for consistency
Trying to simplify and streamline data collection as much as possible, make it fit with workflows at sites and make sure we are supporting and automating these processes as much as possible
Will provide sites with an excel template in the new year, so they can trial data collection around NAV delivery with 5 clients and see how it works
After this trial, will refine process based on experience
Royce will pull items from excel spreadsheet into REDCap so it can be analyzed, plan for bigger data capture towards end of study.
Wrapping up the second wave baseline Fidelity assessments:
Sudbury report to go out, WW report being written, TB has finished data collection - will start draft soon so all reports go out by January
Youth Advisory Committee
Will be creating 2 videos: 1 about contribution to EPI-SET, other about own experiences with psychosis
YAC meeting last Friday with Dr. Kozloff visiting, great discussion about psychosis and mental health
Family Advisory Committee
FAC members have started to attend ECHOs and are appreciating being a part of the discussions happening across sites.
Scheduling to attend site groups as well
Study start-up meeting this week
Focus of the project so far has primarily been on identifying adaptations at Slaight Centre with regards to virtual delivery of NAV model
Thanks to everyone who led the work on the Core Components document for EPI-SET!
Since IRT role is complex, will have IRT clinicians take field notes re: their experience delivering the virtual model for a few days
Once we have all info, we will see if there are any strategies/resources to leverage from CAMH Virtual Mental Health to support virtual delivery
REB: the only patient/family/clinician data collection is with respect to qualitative interviews (CFIR for clinicians), so have been working with Melanie to follow EPI-SET protocol and consents to align with the CFIR process – will be resubmitting to REB this week
Have finalized hiring a research analyst who will start next week
She will attend the EPI-SET calls to help get immersed in the model and because of the close alignment between the two projects
Q: Developing fillable PDFs to support documentation aligns with this work and PSSP
Priority modules were done by CAMH Education and we had started the work by pulling most used handouts from those modules; now Modules 1-7 look different since manuals were revised.
Currently working on a plan internally to have admin support to do it all at once.
Trying to identify priority handouts to get them out faster.
There are a baseline rate of individuals who will not say yes to research
YAC have mentioned reconnecting and checking in with clients again; we have set it up so that there is a window of the 1st year for people to be able to enroll in the study
