CLeAR’s Story

Visioning Day
CLeAR started on January 18, 2013 with a one-day visioning session to lay the initiative’s groundwork. Participants’ input – over 90 attended – served as a tremendous resource to our initiative moving forward.

CLeAR Wave 1

Between October 2013 to December 2014, 48 residential care homes across British Columbia participated in the first wave of CLeAR. The aim of CLeAR Wave 1 was for participating facilities to achieve a province-wide reduction of 50% from baseline in inappropriate use of antipsychotics by December 31, 2014

As the first wave of CLeAR wrapped up, we asked its teams’ members to tell us what CLeAR’s legacy is for them. Check out our slideshow below to see what they had to say. Can’t see it? Click here.

Here is our final report of Wave 1 – The Journey Towards Dignity & Resident Centered Care: Summary Results from CLeAR

CLeAR Wave 2

CLeAR Wave 2 supported 40 Action & Improvement teams from September 2015 – December 2016. The second wave of CLeAR aimed to achieve a 33% reduction in antipsychotic use amongst participating care homes through evidence-based management of the behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) for residents.

Similar to Wave 1, we did a legacy campaign at the end of Wave 2 of CLeAR.  Check out our slideshow below to see what they had to say. Can’t see it? Click here.
