Percentage of residents whose pain worsenedThis indicator looks at how many long-term care residents had worsened pain. Worsening pain can be related to a number of issues, including medication complications and/or improper management of medication. Careful monitoring of changes in pain can help identify appropriate treatment. Worsened pain raises concerns about the resident's health status and the quality of care received.

Calculation: Description

Residents with greater pain (higher Pain Scale score) on their target assessment than on their prior assessment

This indicator examines the percentage of residents who had worsened pain. It is calculated by dividing the number of residents who had worsened pain by the number of all residents with valid assessments whose symptoms increased within the applicable time period.

Description:
Residents with valid assessments whose pain symptoms could increase

The Pain Scale

has a range

ranges from 0 to 3, with higher values indicating that the resident has a more severe pain experience.

Data elements used to calculate the Pain Scale:

– Frequency of Pain (J2a)

– Intensity of Pain (J2b)
Inclusions:
1. Residents with valid assessments. To be considered valid, the target assessment must

a. Be the latest assessment in the quarter

b. Be carried out more than 92 days after the Admission Date

c. Not be an Admission Full Assessment

As this is an incidence indicator, the resident must also have had an assessment in the previous quarter, with 45 to 165 days between the target and prior assessments. If multiple assessments in the previous quarter meet the time period criteria, the latest assessment is selected as the prior assessment.
Exclusions:
1. Residents who had the highest Pain Scale score (3)

Rationale
Table Cell (td)

CCRS quality indicators were developed by interRAI (www.interrai.org), an international research network, to provide organizations with measures of quality across key domains, including physical and cognitive function, safety and quality of life. Each indicator is adjusted for resident characteristics that are related to the outcome

that are

and independent of quality of care. The indicators can be used by quality leaders to drive continuous improvement efforts. They are also used to communicate with key stakeholders through report cards and accountability agreements.

Caveats and Limitations
Table Cell (td)
As the CCRS

Users should be cautious when interpreting results from the Continuing Care Reporting System (CCRS) because the CCRS frame does not currently contain all facilities in all provinces and territories that make up the CCRS population of interest

, users should be cautious when interpreting results from CCRS, as

; thus the population covered by CCRS may not be representative of all continuing care facilities across Canada.

Coverage is incomplete in the following jurisdictions:

Saskatchewan
Manitoba (includes all facilities in Winnipeg Regional Health Authority only)
New Brunswick
Nova Scotia

– Newfoundland and Labrador

Indicators are risk-adjusted to control for potential confounding factors.

Table Cell (td)
Trending Issues
Table Cell (td)

Since 2003, the number of facilities and jurisdictions submitting to CCRS has been increasing. With the addition of new jurisdictions, it is possible that differences in care practices may impact indicator rates; however, changes to the underlying population would be controlled for using risk adjustment. There is also evidence to suggest that trending and use of data from the entire time series is not an issue and that data quality is consistent over time (Hirdes et al., 2013).

Table Row (tr)
Table Cell (td)
Comments
Table Cell (td)

The CCRS quality indicators use

four

4 rolling quarters of data for calculations in order to have a sufficient number of assessments for risk adjustment. Since residents are assessed on a quarterly basis, each resident can contribute to the indicator up to

four

4 times.

Although the CCRS quality indicators are reported publicly at the provincial/territorial level only, indicator results are available at other levels (facility, corporation, region) to data submitters in the CCRS eReports application. Data in the CCRS eReports is updated on a quarterly basis.

Data for this indicator is also available in the Quick Stats tool, which includes results for both the residential and hospital-based continuing care sectors: https://www.cihi.ca/en/quick-stats.
