  • Barriers to Staff Involvement in End-of-Life Decision-Making for Long-Term
           Care Residents with Dementia
    • Authors: Nisha Sutherland; Elaine Wiersma, Paula Vangel
      Pages: 255 - 267
      Abstract: Although providing direct care to residents with dementia, long-term care (LTC) home staff of registered nurses’, registered practical nurses’, and personal support workers’ involvement in end-of-life decision-making is rarely acknowledged. The purpose of this study was to examine barriers and facilitators to LTC home staff involvement in end-of-life decision-making for people with advanced dementia. We report on the barriers to staff involvement in decision-making. Using an interpretive descriptive design, four major barriers to staff involvement in decision-making were identified: (a) the predominance of a biomedical model of care; (b) a varied understanding of a palliative approach; (c) challenging relationships with families; and (d) a discomfort with discussing death. Findings suggest that the predominant biomedical model in LTC homes, while important, must be imbued with a philosophy that emphasizes relationships among residents with dementia, family and staff.

  • ‘That just breaks my heart’: Moral Concerns of Direct Care Workers
           Providing Palliative Care in LTC Homes
    • Authors: Elaine Wiersma; Jill Marcella, Jessica McAnulty, Mary Lou Kelley
      Pages: 268 - 280
      Abstract: The literature on ethics in health care that explores the moral concerns of care providers typically focuses on registered health professionals and ethical dilemmas in acute and primary care. Far less attention has been paid to the long-term care (LTC) environment and non-registered, direct care workers. To address this gap, this research examined the moral concerns of personal support workers (PSWs) who provide direct care to residents. Data were collected during a 5-year participatory action research project to formalize palliative care programs in LTC homes. Eleven focus groups explored PSWs’ experiences providing palliative care in LTC homes, their challenges and learning needs (n = 45). In-depth secondary analysis of these focus groups found that PSWs experienced moral dilemmas. Two main moral dilemmas were ensuring that residents don’t die alone; and providing the appropriate care based on residents’ wishes. Their organizational constraints coalesced around policies, hierarchy, time, and balancing residents’ needs.

  • An Analysis of Documents Guiding Palliative Care in Five Canadian
           Provinces
    • Authors: Carolyn Hill; Wendy Duggleby, Lorraine Venturato, Pamela Durepos, Pereya Kulasegaram, Paulette Hunter, Lynn McCleary, Tamara Sussman, Genevieve Thompson, Doug Surtees, Abigail Wickson-Griffiths, Sharon Kaasalainen
      Pages: 281 - 295
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to analyse the consistency and extent of palliative content across high-level guiding documents related to the care of persons residing in Canadian long-term care homes. A systematic search was conducted examining documents at the national level and across five provinces (Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Quebec). Twenty-five documents were selected based on inclusion criteria from 273 documents identified in the systematic search. The majority of these documents were created nationally (48%) or in Ontario (28%). Documents varied in palliative topics discussed, and long-term care was discussed minimally. A minimal number of palliative care guiding documents were found. Long-term care specific documents were absent, and all documents lacked consistency on palliative topics. It is imperative that palliative principles are present and consistent in high-level documents in order to improve the quality of life and care for long-term care residents across Canada.

      Abstract: We know little about the retirement plans of adults with chronic diseases. This research recruited Canadian workers 50–67 years of age from a national panel of 80,000 individuals (arthritis, n = 631; diabetes, n = 286; both arthritis and diabetes, n = 111; no chronic disabling conditions, n = 538). A cross-sectional survey asked participants about their expected age of retirement, future work plans, whether they were retiring sooner than planned, and bridged retirement. Chi-square analyses, analyses of variance, and regression analyses examined expectations and factors associated with them. Despite health difficulties, workers with arthritis and diabetes had retirement plans similar to those of healthy controls and consistent with normative expectations of working to a traditional retirement age. However, more respondents with arthritis or diabetes reported bridged retirement than healthy controls. Contrary to predictions, health factors accounted for less of the variance in retirement expectations than other factors. These findings point to the complexity surrounding retirement expectations and highlight person–job fit rather than disease factors alone.

  • Pré-implantation de l’Accompagnement-citoyen personnalisé
           d’intégration communautaire (APIC): Adaptabilité, collaboration et
           financement, les déterminants d’une implantation réussie
    • Authors: Laurie Piché; Sophie Arsenault, Mathilde Leblanc, Nathalie Croteau, Mélanie Levasseur
      Pages: 315 - 327
      Abstract: Cette étude visait à identifier les facilitateurs, les obstacles et la faisabilité d’implanter un Accompagnement-citoyen personnalisé d’intégration communautaire (APIC) pour des aînés en perte d’autonomie et vivant dans la communauté. L’APIC est un suivi hebdomadaire de trois heures réalisé par un accompagnateur non professionnel formé et supervisé qui vise à optimiser la réalisation d’activités sociales et de loisirs de personnes ayant des incapacités. Une recherche-action a permis de réaliser des entretiens semi-dirigés auprès de 16 participants de la communauté. Les principaux facilitateurs de l’implantation sont l’adaptabilité de l’APIC et son appui scientifique, la reconnaissance d’un besoin, l’expertise et la collaboration. La présence de leaders ouverts à la nouveauté et d’individus offrant du soutien est favorable. Le financement de l’implantation, associé à un contexte économique défavorable, est un obstacle. La majorité des participants perçoivent qu’il serait faisable d’implanter l’APIC en l’intégrant à des structures bénévoles déjà existantes. Ces connaissances permettront d’optimiser l’implantation de l’APIC ou d’interventions similaires dans la communauté.

  • Slow Stream Rehabilitation for Older Adults: A Scoping Review
    • Authors: Melody Maximos; Sirirat Seng-iad, Ada Tang, Paul Stratford, Vanina Dal Bello-Haas
      Pages: 328 - 349
      Abstract: Canadian older adults with complex health problems are often considered ineligible for traditional rehabilitation programs but may benefit from slow stream rehabilitation (SSR). This scoping review summarizes the literature related to SSR for older adults, within single-payer health care systems. Methods: Peer-reviewed and grey-literature documents relevant to older adults in SSR were systematically reviewed. Results: 1,445 documents were screened independently by two reviewers [Cohen Kappa value of 0.78 (CI = 0.73, 0.83)], and included 18 documents. SSR programs were found to be multidisciplinary with a mean duration ranging from 30 to 141.2 days. SSR participants were more likely to be female, with a mean age range of 72–82 years, multiple co-morbidities and mild-to-moderate cognitive impairments. SSR participants demonstrated improvements in physical and functional measures. Discussion: SSR programs have the potential to be an integral part of the continuum of care for older adults with complex medical histories.

  • Measuring the Implementation of Lifestyle-Integrated Functional Exercise
           in Primary Care for Older Adults: Results of a Feasibility Study
    • Authors: Jenna C. Gibbs; Caitlin McArthur, James Milligan, Lindy Clemson, Linda Lee, Veronique M. Boscart, George Heckman, Paul Stolee, Lora M. Giangregorio
      Pages: 350 - 366
      Abstract: Our pilot study evaluated the feasibility, effectiveness, and implementation of a group-based lifestyle-integrated functional exercise (Mi-LiFE) program for older adults in an interprofessional primary care practice. A physical therapist taught participants how to integrate strength and balance activities into daily routines during one individual and four group sessions, and two follow-up phone calls. Feasibility outcomes were recruitment, adherence, and retention over 6 months. Physical activity (PA) (accelerometer, International Physical Activity Questionnaire [IPAQ]), Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB), and health-related quality of life (EuroQol Five-Dimensional Questionnaire with 3 Levels [EQ5D-3L]) were evaluated at baseline and 6 months. Of the 123 eligible individuals, 39 per cent participated and 61 per cent were not interested or unreachable. Forty-eight participants (mean ± standard deviation [SD] age = 81 ± 5 years; body mass index [BMI] = 28 ± 5 kg/m2; 60% women; moderate-to-vigorous PA = 49 ± 87 minutes/week) enrolled. Four participants withdrew prior to intervention. Thirty-two participants (67%) were retained at follow-up. Daily diary-documented adherence was 50 per cent at 6 months, and 77 per cent attended more than four sessions. No statistically significant changes in moderate-to-vigorous PA and SPPB outcomes were observed; yet self-reported strength and balance PA and quality of life significantly improved at follow-up. The Mi-LiFE program is feasible with acceptable recruitment and attendance rates alongside modifications to address retention and adherence challenges. These findings inform the feasibility of future pragmatic exercise programs in primary care for older adults.

  • Collaborative Approaches to Team-Based Primary Health Care for Individuals
           with Dementia in Rural/Remote Settings
    • Authors: Amanda Froehlich Chow; Debra Morgan, Melanie Bayly, Julie Kosteniuk, Valerie Elliot
      Pages: 367 - 383
      Abstract: Applying primary health care (PHC) team-based approaches to diagnosing and treating dementia is considered best practice. Unfortunately, those living in rural and remote areas often have limited access to dementia-specific PHC services. The purpose of this scoping review was to identify and understand PHC team-based approaches for dementia care in rural settings. A search strategy was employed which included only peer-reviewed journal articles that were published from 1997 to 2017. Four databases (Embase, Medline, PsycInfo, and CINAHL) were searched from March 2017 to May 2017. Among the 10 studies included there was a variation in the degree of collaboration and interaction among the care teams. Limited information existed about collaboration strategies among care teams. An adaptation of the socio-ecological model enabled us to categorize key factors influencing collaborative team-based approaches. Combined, these findings can be used to inform both future research and the development of a rural PHC dementia model.

  • Health Care Provider Experiences of and Perspectives on Medical Assistance
           in Dying: A Scoping Review of Qualitative Studies
    • Authors: Laura Brooks
      Pages: 384 - 396
      Abstract: Much of the literature on health care provider perspectives on medical assistance in dying (MAiD) is focused on the role of the physician, with some literature examining the views of nurses. Some Canadian provinces however, have implemented multidisciplinary approaches to MAiD. As a result, an improved understanding of the experiences of a variety of health care providers in the MAiD process will be important to consider as provincial MAiD plans continue to develop. This scoping review aimed to summarize the existing qualitative literature focused on provider experiences in the MAiD process. Key themes emerged across the literature that were related to the complexity of the MAiD process, the importance of relationships and communication, interprofessional roles and dynamics, and the coping process. The results of this review demonstrate the need for further investigation into the experiences of diverse MAiD providers, especially within the Canadian context.

  • Medical Assistance in Dying: Alberta Approach and Policy Analysis
    • Authors: James L. Silvius; Ameera Memon, Mubashir Arain
      Pages: 397 - 406
      Abstract: The legalization of medical assistance in dying (MAID) in Canada has presented an opportunity for physicians, policy makers, and patients to rethink end-of-life care. This article reviews the key features of the Alberta MAID framework and puts it in the context of other provinces and their MAID programs. We also compared policies and MAID practices in different provinces/territories of Canada. In addition, we used the Alberta MAID database to provide the current state of patient demographics and access to MAID services in Alberta in 2017–2018. Significant differences were identified between provincial/territorial MAID program processes and practices. Alberta, Ontario, and Quebec have more comprehensive frameworks. Alberta has dedicated resources to the support of MAID. The median age of those who received MAID service in Alberta from July 2017 to April 2018 was 70 years; a higher proportion were males (55%) and the majority included patients with a cancer diagnosis (70%). Approximately 39 per cent of MAID events happened in a hospital setting, and 38 per cent occurred in patients’ homes. We have presented some recommendations on MAID program development, implementation, and review based on Alberta’s experience with MAID over the past two years.

  • Dementia Care in Canada: Nursing Recommendations
    • Authors: Veronique M. Boscart; Susan McNeill, Doris Grinspun
      Pages: 407 - 418
      Abstract: The prevention and management of dementia in Canada is at a crossroads. Despite the low diagnosis rates, the number of persons living with dementia continues to increase. Yet, Canada’s health care policies have resulted in more people living with dementia living at home, and with most of their care being provided by family, friends, and significant others. This Policy Note provides an overview of a joint submission from the Canadian Gerontological Nursing Association (CGNA) and the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) to the Standing Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science, and Technology. This article outlines the background and recommendations in five key areas of dementia care in Canada: health system resources, education and training of health providers, housing, care partners, and the integration of health and social supports. Based on these five key areas, a number of health and social policy interventions are discussed.
