  • First ECHO session is August 27th

  • Reminders have been sent to the Hub and Spoke members for the photo consent form/bio and photo—will send a final reminder on Friday along with ECHO agenda.

  • Pre-survey has been built in REDCap and will be sent out prior to the ECHO session on Friday August 23nd

  • Case presentation for first ECHO session has been received from Tom—progress through the medication algorithm is blank but will be discussed in the session

  • Monthly satisfaction surveys have been created in REDCap—need to add objectives which Tom will send when he is back on Monday. Cheryl will add the objectives in REDCap once they have been received.

  • Tom also to send slides for first session when he is back on Monday—Dielle will circulate these if possible before the session, if not they will be posted on the chat and/or EPI-SET web portal for the first session.

  • Hiwot will help set up Zoom for the session and Maurey/Victoria from ECHO and Dielle will moderate

Training, Onboarding Materials and Documents

  • Sarah to confirm with trainers if the simulation and training can be done in day- sites have been inquiring about the training date as EPION has started to make travel arrangements for some of the members

  • HSN has requested a French version of the Posters, as per the HSN policy any ‘public facing’ information must be provided in both official languages—Sudbury

  • Alexia suggested that PSSP can help with translation and might be best to start with the 2 posters that are public facing (family/youth)

  • This might be an ongoing ask with the sites up north—at present only the NAVIGATE family manual is translated in Spanish. Will need to consider translation of handouts and NAVIGATE manuals to French


Feedback from the sites is that there are too many meetings. ex: the project meetings and the implementation meetings where they provide updates; sites think there is redundancy and are feeling overwhelmed with the frequency of meetings

Suggestions that emerged from the meeting:

  • Don’t include sites on the first meeting of the month; they can attend the 3rd meeting of the month

  • Restructure the 3rd meeting of the month to include 1) updates from PSSP, EPI-SET, SC 2) discuss issues from sites and troubleshoot 3) PSSP to provide updates on what’s coming forward and share SC agenda.

  • Consider having videoconference instead of tele-conference calls

  • Extend 3rd meeting from 45mins to 60mins

  • Continue sending invites for the project meeting so sites know they are welcome to attend if they want to.

  • Sarah and Alexia suggested grouping challenges in themes and creating and onboarding repository of issues that emerge. PSSP has created an excel sheet to track barriers with mitigation strategies

  • Dedicate 5mins of the SC meeting for implementation updates at the start of the meeting.

PSSP is working on a KE strategy for interested sits not funded by research–to be added to SC agenda in coming weeks.

How do we train new sites that are not part of research—do they get NAVIGATE LIGHT?

Nikki suggested that we compare sites receiving full NAVIGATE and NAVIGATE LIGHT. Would be important to track what each site is receiving.
