The P.I.E.C.E.S. Approach
P.I.E.C.E.S. is a best practice learning and development initiative that provides an approach to understanding and enhancing care for individuals with complex physical and cognitive/mental health needs and behaviour changes. P.I.E.C.E.S. enables a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach and promotes continuous improved shared care practices through human resource development and changes in practice.
The P.I.E.C.E.S. holistic approach to understanding the meaning behind a person’s behaviour comes from considering the person’s; Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual health, supportive strategies to maximize Capabilities, the individual’s social and physical Environment, and his/her Social self (cultural, spiritual, Life Story).
The P.I.E.C.E.S. approach has a 3-Question Template at its foundation to facilitate a shared TEAM understanding of the often multiple causes and associated risks; care planning can recognize areas of need and build upon the person’s remaining strengths. The person and family are the centre-point of every TEAM.
The target audience is Regulated Health Professionals interested in becoming a P.I.E.C.E.S. Resource Person within their organization. Developing the core competencies will require support from the organization’s senior leadership team and the local PRC / geriatric outreach/specialty team; this will improve team and individual practices and promote collaborative care.
The P.I.E.C.E.S. 16-hour program focuses on the development of six core competencies to:
+ Detect or flag cognitive/mental health needs and associated behavioural issues.
+ Use the template to guide a systematic, comprehensive, and team approach to complex issues.
+ Use the recommended tools to collect data.
+ Plan care with others (internal and external to the organization).
+ Evaluate based on the goals developed through care planning.
+ Coach other staff to develop the above five competencies in others
