The ISU team humbly and gratefully acknowledge the ancestral, traditional and unceded territories where we live, work and play. We invite our site visitors to reflect on their past, present and future participation on the lands where they are situated.
The Innovation Support Unit (ISU) improves the health of British Columbians by supporting innovation and improvement in primary care. This is accomplished by collaborating with primary care programs and projects in our province and by connecting academic knowledge and our faculty with these projects in applied projects.
We help apply evidence and develop new services and knowledge. Our methods actively improve the chances for success of these programs and projects by leveraging our unique expertise and position at UBC as an academic health systems partner.
