inSite Wins Two CLeAR Awards!

Congratulations to two of our Residential Care homes for winning awards at the CLeAR Celebration Webinar!

  • Mt Ida Mews was awarded the “Bringing the Past into the Present” award for their innovative ideas – in particular the creation of the old fashioned ice cream trucks.
  • Brandt’s Creek Mews was awarded the “Mission Possible” award for achieving the highest number or reductions and discontinuations of residents with 29 reductions and 38 discontinuations for a total of 67 residents.

The aim of CLeAR – our Call for Less Antipsychotics in Residential Care – was to achieve a reduction in the number of seniors in residential care on antipsychotic medications by 50% across BC by December 31, 2014 through a province-wide, voluntary initiative that supports participating sites. CLeAR was created by the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council.

Way to go team!
