Workshop 5
How CIHI Data Can Support Pain Management Initiative

Wednesday, November 29, 2017
10:30 - 12:00 pm
Pier 2 & 3
Public reporting by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) of nine long-term care quality indicators has put a spotlight on the RAI MDS 2.0 data, and on the use of RAI outputs for decision support and quality improvement. However, the huge amount of data generated by the RAI assessments can make it challenging to get a clear picture of what the data is saying, and how it can be used to develop action plans to initiate improvement and monitor outcomes. This interactive workshop will provide long-term care operators with a systematic approach to evaluate their home indicators effectively. Members of the Seniors Quality Leap Initiative (SQLI) will showcase how they identified an opportunity to improve pain management for residents when benchmarking their performance compared to peers. CIHI staff will address how to select and assess indicators and contextual information to understand issues related to resident population. Attendees will learn about a process for digging deeper into data to better understand an issue, compare with peers, find drivers of performance, and define appropriate benchmarks.

Speakers: Cyrelle Muskat, Helen Wei-RandallLili Liu & Melissa Donskov
