The CHCA’s SPRINT Implementation Collaboratives facilitate the systematic implementation of leading practices. Customized to meet the unique needs of home and community-based care providers, we provide tools, training, coaching and technical assistance in rapid testing for knowledge, implementation science, and practical clinical and operational processes.
Through the SPRINT-WCPR Implementation Collaborative™ we are helping local teams adapt and implement Whole Community Palliative Rounds (WCPR). Profiled as a High Impact Practice, WCPR is a strategy used to engage inter-professional palliative care teams in purposeful and timely communication, shared decision making and collaborative care planning.
Between May – December 2019, eleven teams are participating in the SPRINT-WCPR Implementation Collaborative. Beginning with the two-day in-person on-boarding session in June 2019, the teams will be engaging in online learning sessions featuring subject matter experts in quality, implementation and WCPR. They will collaborative, create processes and adapt existing resources during the designated action periods. Throughout the process, teams will be supported by customized coaching sessions and shared resources from the collaborative members. This unique approach enables teams to adapt and rapidly test new ideas, engage with partners, try new motivational strategies and determine the value of WCPR to address their local needs.
