Protect Study- PRevenTing distrEss Of CogniTively impaired patients during minimally invasive procedures

Project: Research

Project Details


The purpose of this project is to quantify the prevalence of distress experienced by patients with cognitive impairment (CI) during minimally invasive procedures in acute care settings, explore the impact of this distress on patient, care partner and staff outcomes and identify effective strategies used by health care staff to reduce patient distress. Mixed methods will be used including audits of retrospective data from clinical incident reports, semi-structured interviews with health care staff, patients and/ or care partners and observational methods to explore minimally invasive procedures conducted with patients who are experiencing CI.
