Study Summary

In a previous research study, the investigators adapted an evidence-based team training intervention for healthcare settings (TeamSTEPPS) to fit the needs and context of Child Advocacy Center multidisciplinary teams. This study is a cluster-randomized controlled trial of the adapted training, TeamTRACS (Team Training in Roles, Awareness, Communication, and Support). This hybrid type 2 effectiveness-implementation study will test the effectiveness of TeamTRACS and pilot a self-guided approach to implementing TeamTRACS in low-resource settings.

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.
