It was not a controlled study with attention to controlling for diagnosis, case mix, etc. We did not have a control group for comparison purposes. In addition, this project was limited to medical-surgical units in the acute care setting. As a consequence, we have no information on how well the program may work in other settings such as long term care or mental health units. Finally, because we do not know the precise response rate of patients or staff participating in The Daily Plan® pilot, it is possible that responses were received by those who had strongly negative or positive reactions to The Daily Plan®.
