Assess – What do we need to change and are we ready to make those changes? During this phase, long-term care homes (LTCHs) look at the practice changes and assess both their need for the program and what they should focus on in addition to making sure they are ready to get started. At the end of this phase, LTCHs will have a good understanding of whether they are ready to move forward with implementing the Program.
Use the two worksheets below to help assess for need and fit of the Program, and whether your LTCH is ready to implement. Once you have confirmed your readiness, you will then move on to establishing the implementation team that will support the implementation of the Program.
Complete practice change questionnaire
This questionnaire asks LTCHs to identify their current practices related to UTI management and treatment. These questions help to establish your readiness for the program and identify the objectives you will need to include in your implementation plan.
Review the considerations for readiness
These tips will help you reflect on the context within which your LTCH will implement the UTI Program and assess whether now is the right time to start.
Get the implementation team together
This resource identifies considerations for who should be on your implementation team and how the team will function to support implementing the UTI Program in your LTCH.
