Please join us for the next HDR Seminar- Wednesday, October 23rd at 12:00 PM. Bethlyn Houlihan will present “Development of an automated health care self-advocacy training intervention for individuals with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)”. My Care My Call (MCMC) builds on the efficacy of the Care Call (CC) intervention, developed by a multi-disciplinary team led by Ms. Bethlyn Houlihan at the New England Regional SCI Center, now located at the Health & Disability Research Institute under the direction of Dr. Alan Jette. CC reduced pressure ulcers among women with SCI and reduced depression among those depressed at baseline. Currently, the MCMC intervention is being developed and will be pilot tested prior to a Randomized Controlled Trial scheduled to begin in early 2014. To promote relevance and effectiveness, the development of MCMC relies heavily on consumer input, and involves a number of components: writing script content and specifications, compiling the Resource Book, soliciting provider recommendations, creating consumer vignettes, and finalizing outcomes measures. Ms. Houlihan will review progress to date and challenges that have arisen. She will live-test several scripts for group feedback, and request input into the further development of the MCMC system. Lunch will be provided, so please RSVP to Anna Schmidt (aschmid8@bu.edu), if you plan to attend. NOTE: This seminar will be available via webinar. WEBINAR INSTRUCTIONS 1.)
