The TBC@UBC Network, supported by UBC Health, convenes health professionals and leaders, community members, academics, and policymakers to bring forward questions and ideas important for team-based care in BC. The network supports province-wide efforts to enhance team-based care in BC, by enabling participants to learn from each other and connect their efforts, and engaging UBC’s potential to contribute education, research, evaluation, and knowledge translation. Each network event applies a different lens to the themes of research, pedagogy, and innovation.

The session on February 9 will ask: 

  • How are healthcare teams and networks innovating with, and being impacted by, remote presencing technology (including Zoom and FaceTime), virtual sims.ed, and virtual care?
  • What ideas and questions are arising for virtually-assisted education of health professional learners in team-based care across BC, particularly those in rural and remote areas of the province?

The session will provide panelist perspectives and lots of space for dialogue among participants. The three panelists’ perspectives reflect themes of practice innovation, education, and research:

  • John Pawlovich, Clinical Professor, Department of Family Practice, Faculty of Medicine, UBC; Rural Doctors’ UBC Chair in Rural Health
  • Rae Marchal, Physiotherapist, University Hospital of Northern BC
  • Jude Kornelsen, Assistant Professor and Co-Director, Centre for Rural Health Research, Department of Family Practice, Faculty of Medicine, UBC
