Project Title: Systematically applying a prognostication tool (RESPECT) to improve end-of-life conversations and decision making in the community
In partnership with Champlain Home and Community Care, this project will implement and evaluate a web-based tool that enables caregivers of people with dementia (PWD) to identify those with the greatest risk of further health decline. We will evaluate if the platform generates meaningful health projections, and if implementation of this tool can improve end-of-life discussions, reduce hospitalizations, and increase a person’s time living at home.
