The Role

Douglas Applied Research and Education projects involve intensive delivery focused work with our community research partners.
The DARE ‘Team Calculator’ project is a co-development project with our partners Abbotsford Division of Family Practice that is focused on the development of a software application that enables physicians, clinics and regions to calculate the allied health resources that might be deployed in the treatment of various diseases, and various stages of diseases. This calculation software will utilize clinical ‘best practice’ models to produce an evidence-based resourcing configuration at patient, panel, clinic and geographic region level.
An initial proof of concept has been developed and demonstrated to the community of users of this application and validation of its value to the community has been received. This is likely to be a multi-stage project, with this stage of the project focusing on a stand-alone working application of the team calculator.
