Want to learn more now? Watch this 20-minute video to see how ICan teaches staff to:

  • Identify challenges within their scope of practice
  • Pull together and lead an interdisciplinary team to solve the challenge
  • Identify possible solutions

Dozens of ICan projects have been led by frontline staff around the state over the last three years. Past projects have included:

  • Increasing the safety of resident transfers by changing the wheels on lifts from a small size to a large size, which reduced the risk of falls, eased movement over floor transitions, made residents feels safer and reduced physical stress on caregivers.
  • Implementing an aromatherapy program to promote patient comfort and reduce the use of opioids for pain management.
  • Updating the contents, stocking process and efficiency of first aid kits.
  • Initiating the use of Communication Boards.
  • Improving resident grooming practices and staff accountability.
  • Relaunching onboarding and training practices to impact retention of staff.
  • And so many more!
