Study Summary

In long-term care, staff provide help to residents with bathing, dressing, eating, walking, toileting, transferring, and moving in bed. Some residents can do more for themselves than others. This study will compare two groups of residents who require the same level of help from staff. Over eight weeks, one group will receive occupational therapy services provided by OT students and the other group will not. After the eight weeks, the level of help that each group of people requires will be looked at to see if there are any differences.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
