Topic for Executive Summary assignment:

Improve care at the end of life in long term care facilities

This project will develop an educational program for staff and administrators aimed at improving the care of the dying in nursing homes (long-term care facilities). A qualitative research program will be pursued to identify the difficulties in providing humane care to dying residents in long-term care facilities. The qualitative research will include focus groups consisting of staff and administrators as well as interviews with the family members of recently deceased nursing home residents. The community liaison will be performing the research along with the nurses in the facilities helping perform interviews, making the cost for this program minimal. The project will be evaluated by Process-Based Evaluations. Process-based evaluations are geared to fully understanding how a program works — how does it produce that results that it does. These evaluations are useful if programs are long-standing and have changed over the years, employees or customers report a large number of complaints about the program, there appear to be large inefficiencies in delivering program services and they are also useful for accurately portraying to outside parties how a program truly operates
