PROMOTE – Feasibility Study
PROMOTE is an 8-week hydration research project that is resident-centred and focuses on diverse reasons for low fluid intake. The program focuses on ways to promote beverage consumption, especially between meals.
The PROMOTE strategies are evidence-based and have demonstrated effects in prior research on increasing fluid intake, but now have been assembled into one intervention. The 8 components of PROMOTE include:
- using Preferred cups & drinks;
- offering Reminders to drink;
- Offering fluid with routines and home events;
- reminding residents to drink when provided with their Medications;
- Offering drinks as a social opportunity in common areas;
- offering a Trolley of drink choices; and
- Educating team members/residents and encouraging fluid intake.
The research team is currently conducting a feasibility study of the PROMOTE program within Schlegel Villages, the aim of which is to demonstrate that the PROMOTE intervention study can be conducted in a rigorous manner and is feasible, prior to application for a multi-site intervention study.
