Patient Measures

Recruitment Update:

  • Total Referrals received: 29

  • Baseline completed: 14 (Durham: 10; Niagara: 1; NB: 3)

  • 6-month Follow-Up completed: 1, scheduling more

  • Participants this week: 1 (Niagara)

Durham team feedback: suggested that Dielle and Abanti attend bi-weekly instead of weekly

  • Clinic flow: Larger sites will have more new patients, so even when the process is moving smoothly, want to be aware of new patients coming in

  • For sites where there is little patient flow, do not need to meet as frequently – but for Durham, keep meeting weekly for the near future

  • o FAC and YAC have brought up that it is helpful to have people with lived experience engage with clinical teams

Continuing to attend site meetings

  • Coordinating Sudbury research orientation meeting

  • Coordinating Waterloo virtual site visits, will be meeting Tuesday mornings

  • Currently contacting youth and family participants to book more visits
