Tonya Roberts, PhD, RN, Assistant Professor in the UW School of Nursing, and Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD, Director of the Program of Research on Outcomes for Kids (PROKids) recently received an ICTR-CAP Stakeholder and Patient Engaged Research (SPER) Award for their project, “Engaging Residents and Families as Quality Partners in Nursing Homes.” This year-long, $100,000 award will develop a stakeholder-designed tool to support nursing home residents and their families as Quality Partners. The team will expand their existing WI Family Engagement Nursing Home Community Network to include residents and families from nursing home facilities in Wisconsin. This network will collaboratively identify outcomes that matter most to residents and families and then co-design a Quality Partner tool to address these priority outcomes. The work builds on their successful collaboration to adapt Dr. Cox’s Family Centered Rounding approach for use in nursing homes. Findings from this work have the potential to result in effective, broadly implementable, and sustainable interventions that will improve quality of care for nursing home residents.
