The ISU works alongside a number of organizations as part of the Team-Based Care (TBC) Advisory Group, which is an initiative of the Ministry of Health and includes partners from across BC’s health care system. The purpose of the Team-Based Care Advisory Group is to provide province-wide support for the implementation of high quality team-based care.
We have been involved in supporting and facilitating the scoping, defining, and prioritization of the TBC Advisory Group work, developing a clear and effective governance structure, and undertaking a number of specific projects to support implementation of team-based care.
We host the TeamUP! Podcast, support the monthly TeamUp! Webinar, and contribute to the planning and development of the Team-Based Care BC website.
The ISU has completed three Learning Cycles in support of TBC Advisory objectives.
- TBC Supports Inventory Scan (Summer 2019): Focussed on an environmental scan of resources to support the implementation of TBC in BC. Results from this scan formed the foundation of the new teambasecarebc.ca website.
- Learning Health Systems (Summer 2019 and Winter 2021): To develop a conceptual design for a first version of a Primary Care Learning Needs Learning System that helps identify learning needs of providers in primary care in BC, including proposing options for provincial **collection, review, and fulfilling identified learning needs.
- Getting Started Toolkit (Winter 2021): A focussed learning cycle which scoped what was needed in a TBC Getting Started Toolkit and drafted a work-plan for launching a first version of the toolkit.
