CEBI’s consultation service provides implementation science expertise and advice to clinical, administrative or education teams at HHS who are working to implement change with the goal of improving clinical processes or outcomes.┬áThe CEBI team will be posting a more formal description of our consultation service protocol on this page in the near future.

If you would like assistance with a project in the meantime, please send an email to cebi@hhsc.ca introducing yourself/your team and your project, along with your questions.

CEBI staff have provided consultations to the following HHS teams to date:

Hospital Harm

The purpose of this Steering Committee is to support the implementation of practices to decrease hospital harm in four areas: sepsis; surgical site infection; catheter-associated urinary tract infection; and central line-associated blood stream infection. CEBI is providing the Steering Committee with recommendations for moving forward, and is meeting with the individual project teams as needed.

After Hours Paging

The purpose of this project is to develop criteria for standardized after hours paging and a batch calling strategy for nurses. The goal of the program is to reduce the number of pages, particularly non-urgent pages, to residents, and to improve response time for urgent and emergent calls. CEBI provided the project team with suggestions for refining and evaluating their paging intervention, and made recommendations for future implementation at other HHS sites.

My Stroke Team (MyST) Study

The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility and acceptability of a mobile health application called the My Stroke Team (MyST) and to evaluate its usability and impact. The app was developed to address a range of challenges experienced by health care providers and stroke survivors and their families. CEBI provided the study team with general feedback regarding ongoing implementation and use of the app.
