CAHO Pilot Project at TBRHSC a SuccessJanuary 31, 2015 Patients with possible spine injury usually had to wait in an uncomfortable collar for a physician assessment. However, nurses in the TBRHSC Emergency Department (ED) can now independently “clear” and remove c-collars, thanks to clinical research done right here. The Council of Academic Hospitals of Ontario (CAHO) selected TBRHSC to participate in the Canadian C-Spine Rule (CCR) ARTIC Research Project to implement an interprofessional-care approach in the ED. During this project a total of 712 patients were screened and assessed by nurses. It has greatly improved patient comfort and patient flow in this, one of Canada’s busiest, emergency departments.read more about 'CAHO Pilot Project at TBRHSC a Success'
