Casey House research lead Soo Chan Carusone got big news last week. A research grant from the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) was approved for a participatory evaluation of Casey House’s day health program when it launches next year.
Led by University of Toronto’s Dr. Carol Strike and a multi-disciplinary, bi-coastal team, including three Casey House staff members, this three year community based participatory project will evaluate the new day health program and answer such questions as – ‘what are the clinicians’ experiences providing care to clients with complicated health problems?’ and ‘does the program get the results that people living with HIV/AIDS believe are important for their health and well being?’
Findings will be used to evaluate the success of the day health program, to improve it, and to educate the wider HIV/AIDS community about how to best deliver ethical care. Congratulations Soo!
