TBC@UBC network event June 15: Innovative composition of disciplines on healthcare teams

Wednesday, June 15, 2022 | 12:00-1:30 pm PT | Zoom | Register: bit.ly/tbcubc_jun15reg

How are healthcare teams innovating with, and being impacted by, adding novel disciplines and roles into the team to address prevalent patient needs? What ideas and questions arise from such innovative team composition?

The Pacific Northwest Division of Family Practice has partnered with UBC dietetics and kinesiology programs and other organizations to establish a team-based program called CHANGE BC. The program is led by a family physician who educates patients about the risks of chronic disease and includes a dietitian and kinesiologist who empower them to undertake an individualized supervised program of diet modification and exercise. This approach is a response to local health needs, particularly among Indigenous communities. Where patients want connection to land-based activities, such as harvesting wild food, the program aims to link physical activity and diet elements to those activities, in connection with the community’s culture and traditions.

Panelists representing this unique partnership will engage network members to raise and consider ideas, issues, and questions about developing team-based care with novel disciplines and roles, with special consideration of innovative practices, health professional education, and research.

The formal presentation and question period (60 minutes) will be followed by an opportunity for informal discussion and networking (30 minutes):

  • 12:00-1:00 pm: Panel Presentation and Dialogue
  • 1:00-1:30 pm: Informal Discussion and Networking (optional)

To participate, register at bit.ly/tbcubc_jun15reg.

About the TBC@UBC Network

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 practice innovation.
