The Patient-Centred Innovations for Persons with Multimorbidity (PACE in MM) study is a multifaceted 5 year Quebec-Ontario collaborative program funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) to evaluate innovative models of integrated chronic disease prevention and management (CDPM). The evaluation of the TIP/IMPACT Plus program is one component. Over 10 Toronto organizations are participating to-date along with independent family doctors.
TIP / IMPACT Plus RCT Patient Expectations
If your patient agrees to participate, they will be randomized to receive either usual care as normal plus the TIP/IMPACT Plus clinic or usual care as normal plus a List of Resources. There is an equal probability your patient will receive usual care or the TIP/IMPACT Plus intervention.
Your patient will be asked to:
1.) Complete 3 questionnaires which take approximately 60 minutes each to complete (At the start of study participation, 4 months after enrollment, and 16 months after enrollment )
2.) Agree to provide their health card (OHIP) number to allow linkage to Health Administrative data
3.) Participate in the TIP/IMPACT Plus intervention if they are randomized to receive it
4.) Agree to a 30-60 minute interview regarding their experience with the program should they be chosen to (Note: only a small number of patients (~10) will be contacted to participate in an interview from all the patients enrolled in the study (~350) )
