Between May – December 2019, eleven teams participated in the SPRINT-WCPR Implementation Collaborative. Beginning with the two-day in-person on-boarding session in June 2019, the teams engaged in online learning sessions featuring subject matter experts in quality, implementation science and WCPR. Team members collaborated to create processes and adapt existing resources. Throughout the process, teams were supported by customized coaching sessions. This unique approach enabled teams to adapt and rapidly test new ideas, engage with partners, try new motivational strategies and determine the value of WCPR to address their local needs.
Through the SPRINT-WCPR Implementation Collaborative, teams tested, adopted and implemented a new way to support rapid, clinical problem solving for symptom burden in high-risk individuals with palliative care needs. This approach enhanced community capacity to deliver palliative care and shift care policies and programming.
