The pandemic has made working conditions even more challenging for frontline nursing home staff, who face heavy workloads, infection risk, and the emotional burden of caring for residents dealing with significant illness and loneliness, according to findings from a Q&I survey.
As late as June 2020, several months into the novel coronavirus pandemic, extended reuse of personal protective equipment (PPE) remains common in nursing homes, according to findings from a Q&I survey.
We received a 5-year grant to create the Learning Health Systems Rehabilitation Research Network, a resource and incubator to advance stakeholder-partnered rehabilitation research that improves quality, demonstrates value, and enhances patient and systems outcomes.
The survey aims to capture the voices of frontline staff working in long-term care settings during the pandemic and to understand their experiences, in order to help others on the front lines and inform national discussion of long-term care needs, such as personal protective equipment.
The presentation, available on-demand on Vimeo, focused on using the Readiness Assessment for Pragmatic Trials (RAPT) model to assess an intervention's readiness for an embedded pragmatic clinical trial.
