Abstract

In the fall of 2012, the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Health and Community Services (DHCS) and its four Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) formally asked the Contextualized Health Research Synthesis Program (CHRSP) to identify and evaluate the best available research-based evidence on the management of aggression in long-term care (LTC) residents with dementia. Though this topic was initially suggested by officials at Eastern Health, consultations with the province’s other RHAs and with the DHCS revealed that this was a high-priority issue across the province. CHRSP personnel assembled a project team that included officials from Eastern Health and two other RHAs. Dr. Neena Chappell, Canada Research Chair in Social Gerontology and Professor of Sociology at the University of Victoria, agreed to serve as Academic Team Leader for the project.
