Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this cluster randomized controlled trial is to assess the efficacy of a quality improvement intervention called CAPACITI intended to increase competency among primary care teams to deliver early palliative care. CAPACITI is palliative care training and coaching program for primary care teams, comprised of three, two-month (4 session) modules, each addressing a critical component of implementing a palliative care approach into primary care practice.

Clinical Trial Description

Improving access to home-based palliative care can improve patient and system outcomes; however, there is a lack of programs to build capacity among primary care teams to deliver this care. To address this gap, the investigators are offering a quality improvement intervention called CAPACITI. CAPACITI is palliative care training and coaching program for primary care teams, comprised of three, two-month (4 session) modules. Each module addresses a critical component of implementing a PC approach into primary care practice: (1) Identify and Assess; (2) Enhance Communication Skills; (3) Enhance Skills for Ongoing Care (including involvement of family and specialists). Over bi-monthly (one hour) sessions, each CAPACITI module uniquely integrates 3 components: clinical education in the form of expert advice and tips; evidence-based tools; and high-facilitation and expert coaching for adaptation to local context. The study will offer the CAPACITI modules to primary care teams across Canada. Teams that register for a module will be randomized to one of two arms: 1) facilitated learning where the module materials are covered in live webinars, and 2) non-facilitated learning where teams have access to all module materials to use a self-directed approach. The online materials for both study arms will be provided on a learning management system. The investigators will examine the difference between the facilitated and nonfacilitated approaches in teams' abilities to provide a palliative care approach in relation to the content of the module. Ultimately this research program will strengthen the primary care system and increase access to home-based palliative care for patients across Canada. ;
