Notes:  Attended by Liz Johnson and Cheryl Fisher.  Discussed the 89 responses collected to date from the survey - over 60% from the long term care environment (Thanks to Nancy Robinson!).  Cheryl agreed to post a link to the survey on list for research hospitals.  Donna will divide up the survey responses and email out to members of WG1 to evaluate who should be contacted for further information.  We will use the Case Study request form provided by Rob Campbell to request further information from respondents.  Cheryl posted the results of her literature review on WG3.  Also will request literature review post from Pat Hinton Walker.  Next meeting for WG1 is scheduled for January 10, 2008 and we plan to review the results from survey interviews.
