Governance Structure

  • Final review of revised governance structure document to be discussed on January 22nd teleconference

  • Committee membership and committee meeting frequency and structure to be discussed

EPI-SET Project Team Meeting – January 22, 2019

  • Establish frequency of regular EPI-Set Project Team Meeting → quarterly, bimonthly



  • Slaight clinician representative for weekly ECHO Project planning sessions may not be feasible right away. Clinicians will be available for ECHO sessions in July. Sarah to discuss with clinicians.

  • Three clinicians from Slaight will be able to act as facilitators on the call.

  • New clinicians will be rotated into the ECHO Sessions calls over time to maintain sustainability

  • Sarah and George will act as rotating facilitators as well

  • Is the ECHO 1 hour of education and case discussion and half our of debrief – time slot needs to be confirmed - Determine structure of the ECHO calls - Incorporate NAVIGATE specific elements to ECHO sessions (ex. Education)

  • Janet to attend meeting with Standards Committee to provide updates about NAVIGATE and EPI-SET Project. Catherine Ford will be in attendance.

  • EPI-SET Project and the web portal have an agenda slot during this meeting

  • 1-Page EPI-SET Project document from PSSP should be ready for this meeting to distribute key project messages

  • George and Nicole to present briefly (tentative)

  • Use as an opportunity to explore opportunities to bring in other sites

  • Focus on the sustainability and spread of the program and emphasizing PSSP and ECHO’s roles

  • Emphasize the role of the EPI Sites – profiling and highlighting what they can do, give credit to first adopters. Ask EPI Site representatives if they feel comfortable speaking during the meeting to describe their experience thus far and reason to join the project.

  • NAVIGATE Lite is not currently available. Manuals are available publicly, but there is a difference between reading a manual and implementing the program formally with training and sustainability considerations which leads to a different kind of practice change.

  • January 25th EPION Meeting → initial sharing of information

  • EPION Meeting in May 2019 → sites could be more involved in this meeting to speak about their experience of implementing NAVIGATE as key stakeholders of the project.t

  • Janet - Sudbury approached PSSP to do a Fidelity Review → approved and will serve as a potential for re-engagement

ePRO Tool

  • Carolyn Steele Gray meeting with Chelsi, Dielle & George

  • Work that has come out of the Bridgepoint in the rehabilitation field

  • Online portal for promoting goal attainment

  • Considered as a possible outcome measure for functionality based on Eddy Mason’s suggestion during the EPI-SET Launch in October 2018

  • Description: Customizable portal for individuals going through recovery for a chronic medical condition/physical rehab → develop their own goals and to track their targets and success toward targets in real time through a mobile app for ANDROID ONLY or via a web portal

  • Goal setting is initiated with the clinician in the room → patient updates independently after this meeting

  • They are not using it as an outcome measure currently, rather it is used as a mechanism to facilitate change

  • Dr. Steele-Gray uses a quality of life measure as the primary outcome instead of the tool

  • Potentially worth exploring outside the context of this study to help support goal attainment as defined by NAVIGATE

  • Could start as a tool to facilitate IRT goal attainment – pilot at Slaight and look at expanding

  • Cons: Start-up cost and support costs, raises data access questions

Post-Training Support Call Schedule (includes ECHO)

  • Finalize ECHO call time duration and time slot

  • Finalize Prescriber call times with all physicians and trainers

  • Circulate and confirm final Post-Training Call Calendar for 1 year

  • Physicians can get CME credit for participation in research studies - Concern about lack of billing hours during in-person training - Concern about lack of compensation during post-training calls

  • Physicians need to be part of ECHO & Prescriber calls

  • Prescribers Calls & ECHO could also be billed as a case conference if they discuss a case and document it (less money, compromise)

  • CAMH physicians to provide personal experiences adopting NAVIGATE to sites during the in-person training

  • Milena Gosk and Laura Williams to be on the prescriber calls – can alternate

NAVIGATE Booster Calls

  • Post in-person NAVIGATE training calls for 6 weeks (end of Feb – end of March)

  • Tuesdays at 12-1PM → remind sites about the call continuity after pre-training calls end

  • Aim: maintain training and skill practice through role playing/simulations with CAMH clinicians who have experienced NAVIGATE training to support sites during in between period 2.5 in-person training and post-training support calls

  • Lead by Sarah or a clinician
