Translating Research into Elder Care (TREC) is a collaborative partnership of investigators and decision makers whose aim is to improve quality of life and quality of care for older people in residential care. TREC began an integrated program of research in 2007 and has run continuously since. One of TRECs keystone projects, Improving Nursing Home Care through Feedback on PerfoRMance Data (INFORM), was a successful trial with managers and their care teams from over 60 long-term care (LTC) facilities in BC and AB. Building on this work TREC is working with stakeholders and funders in BC to support wider scale implementation of INFORM. A process evaluation run in parallel with implementation of phase 1 will examine how trained facilitators support implementation of INFORM, the fidelity with which they do so, and the barriers, facilitators and contextual factors that influence implementation.
Reporting to the TREC Scientific Director, the Research Associate will design the overall process evaluation plan, develop the protocol in conjunction with the senior TREC team, establish operational procedures, implement and monitor the plan against targets, budget and timelines, and ensure expected outcomes are achieved. A joint group representing TREC and the BC stakeholders will be advisory to the incumbent.
