Canadian Evaluation Society 2017 Conference

The Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) 2017 Conference, to be held in Vancouver, will focus on innovation, action, and reflection. The latest methods and approaches evaluators are applying in a wide range of contexts will be explored, including the ways in which evaluators are incorporating reflection into practice.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Facing Forward: Innovation, Action, and Reflection”, a theme meant to engage both internal and external evaluators in exploring the different ways to think about their role and how they conduct evaluations. The new and emerging demands faced by evaluators in an era of social media, economic challenges, systems thinking, globalization, and other emerging trends will be discussed.

For information about the keynote speakers and plenary panelists, please visit the CES 2017 website. CHÉOS is a Silver Sponsor of this year’s event.

Work in Progress Seminar: Evaluation of a Novel Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Video Decision Aid
May 24 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Jennifer Kryworuchko, PhD, RN, CNCC(C)
Associate Professor, UBC School of Nursing

The provision of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has increased over the last ten years, and the mechanism of CPR delivery is much more effective due to advocacy efforts and education. Unfortunately the rate of survival for hospitalized patients is relatively unchanged; this is particularly true for certain patient populations – those with advanced medical illness and a high near-term risk of death. Patients and families remain poorly informed about CPR and experience difficulty sharing their values and preferences with healthcare professionals. We developed a novel video decision aid (CPR-VDA) to better prepare patients and their families for decision making about CPR (http://vimeo.com/48147363). Then, we conducted a prospective before-and-after study of the CPR-VDA at 3 Canadian academic teaching hospitals. This talk will discuss the findings, successes, and lessons learned from the CPR-VDA study.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.
