RGPc is proud to announce the Specialized Geriatric Services (SGS) Quality Improvement Grant recipient of 2017/18:
A grant was awarded to Niagara Health for their project which aims to increase awareness, knowledge and skills of all their clinical staff as well as offering a variety of strategies to provide extraordinary care for frail elderly, ultimately to improve the overall experience and reduce the utilization of restraints and security staff/observational care attendants.
The goal of Niagara Health’s quality improvement project is to improve the overall experience for both frail seniors, and the staff at Niagara Health through a reduction, and ideally the elimination of restraints. Knowledge and skill acquisition for clinical staff will be a main component of this quality improvement project, with a specific focus on person-centered care planning, and creating safe environments for patients to wander and reduce the risk of elopement from the hospital.
RGPc would like to thank all the applicants for the Specialized Geriatric Services Quality Improvement Grant 2017/18.
