She has co-taught both first year medical students and PharmD students at the University of British Columbia as a guest lecturer.
Many older adults are on multiple medications. While some are vital for health, the more drugs you take (and the older you get), the greater the chance of adverse drug events, falls and hospitalizations.
As well, many people have more than one prescriber (GP and specialists), yet no single prescriber has the responsibility of making sure that your drugs play nice together.
This session is based on the Johanna Trimble’s story of the serious, adverse medication event experienced by her mother-in-law, how the family intervened and what she’s learned in the ten years since then (don’t worry, not all of it!).
Medicating Normal is the untold story of what can happen when profit-driven medicine intersects with human beings in distress.
About the Film: We made this film to help audiences understand what is happening in mental health treatment and why.
The Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc) hosted the first-ever British Columbia Rural Health Research Exchange (BCRHRx) on November 18, 2020, with support from the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues. This virtual half-day event was filled with brief rapid-style presentations designed to inform, engage and share current rural research in British Columbia.
These presentations occurred in Zoom Room A and Room B of the BC Rural Health Research Exchange, coordinated by the Rural Coordination Centre of BC, on November 18, 2020.
Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice has been facilitating an engagement process to explore the potential for a network of community health centre (CHC) clinics in their area, and to learn from those directly involved in community health centers as practitioners, managers or advocates.
If you’d like to learn more about what the Community Health Centre (CHC) model could look like for that region, check out the following July 2020 webinar series:

Citizen Patient Engagement – Interview with Ed and Nienke of the BC Rural Health Network
”On today’s episode we sit down with Ed Staples and Nienke Klaver of the BC Rural Health Network. The BC Rural Health Network is an organization composed of health advocacy groups from rural and remote communities across British Columbia who work to provide a coordinated voice on critical issues for rural health from the patient perspective. Join us to hear how the Network has grown rapidly since its inception only a couple of years ago, and how they have been engaging in health conversations all over the province.” Nicholas Lloyd-Kuzik

Heart of Home
How Hornby Island developed their community home care for elders.
In 1979 a group of women on BC’s Hornby Island came together to provide home support for older residents.
This is a story of promising practices in home support and true community care.
To support equitable access to health care and to improve the health of individuals living in rural and remote Canada, the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) and the Society of Rural Physicians of Canada (SRPC) developed a guide for educators, healthcare practitioners, administrators, policymakers, and researchers. The Rural Road Map for Action described in this 11-minute video, shares four directions and 20 actions that will enhance rural health care if enacted across Canada.
[Randy Morse – BC Rural Network] More than ever, rural/remote communities and First Nations across BC are grappling with serious health & wellness challenges. That is certainly the case in the sparsely populated Regional District of Mt Waddington.
Through a series of conversations during the Island Health strategic planning consultation process in 2005, and a subsequent community and multi-stakeholder dialogue the year after, a community-driven mechanism and process that empowered area citizens, giving them both a voice and the ability to actively participate in improving the health outcomes in their region, led to the creation of the Mt. Waddington Health Network, in 2006.
Over the past 14 years, the Network has notched notable accomplishments, in fields as varied as transportation, seniors/elders better living, youth issues, addiction planning, housing & homelessness, and food security.
Learn how and why the Mt. Waddington Health Network was formed, how it works and what it does, who participates in it, how it measures success, its working relationship with Island Health, and how its experience might be applicable to other rural BC regions in this informative BC Rural Centre webinar video.
Covering more than 20,000 square kilometres, with a population of barely 11,000, for over 14 years British Columbia’s Mount Waddington Health Network has shown it’s possible for rural folks to come together and tackle a range of daunting health & wellness challenges. This BC Rural Centre webinar shines a light on the Network — an informative hour for anyone concerned with innovative, bottom-up approaches to rural health issues.
Press conference with Dr. Shannon McDonald, Acting Chief Medical Officer of the First Nations Health Authority, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer, for an update on how COVID-19 has affected First Nations communities.
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new podcast program, which features in-depth discussions on the health issues that matter most to the residents of rural and remote British Columbia.
In our first series, Innovation From the Edges, we interview rural residents across BC for their stories of community strength, resilience, and resourcefulness in addressing local health priorities. In our first episode we connect with Kristine Perron, of the Quadra Island CareMongering group, to learn about how her community has adapted to life in the era of COVID-19. Stay tuned for future episodes where we’ll hear from Sierra Acton, Area Director of Shawnigan Lake in the Cowichan Valley, and Carrie Chard, Fire Chief from the District of Wells, and others, on Innovation From the Edges.

KEEPERS OF THE HOUSE
By NEIL PROSE and RAY BARFIELD
FEBRUARY 5, 2020
Where we work, housekeepers clean 36 rooms a day. Their work is vital to the prevention of serious infections and to the efficient running of the hospital. It’s clear they also play an important role in the care of patients.
“Interprofessional cooperation” and “teamwork” are among the newest buzzwords in modern hospital medicine. Doctors are consistently reminded that clear, respectful communication with their teams is essential for patient safety and quality of care. But we’ve often been blind to the fact that housekeepers are an essential part of that team.
The 15-minute documentary “Keepers of the House” was designed to be incorporated into an interprofessional curriculum for doctors, nurses, and other health care providers.
The overall goal of the Nav-CARE program is to improve the quality of life of adults living at home with serious illness. Community organizations across Canada are project partners. View the Nav-CARE brochure.
This project builds upon five years of collaborative work with knowledge partners in which we developed the conceptual and theoretical foundations; created, tested, and refined curriculum for volunteer navigators; and conducted three incremental pilots to determine the feasibility and acceptability of the Nav-CARE model.

Senior Care Homes: What you should Know
Seniors in privately run care homes are far more likely to die in hospital than those who live in facilities run by public health authorities and you are 32% more likely to be sent to a hospital emergency department.
In response to a high level of interest in the Office of the Seniors Advocate’s latest report From Residential Care to Hospital: A Pattern Emerges, Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie delivered a presentation to interested stakeholders, media, and members of the public. This presentation was conducted jointly with Dr. Jeff Poss and Dr. Kim McGrail–the two lead researchers behind the report–and provided a deeper dive into the statistical methodology and data sources used. It was followed by a one hour Q&A session.

Perspectives on POR | Partnerships in Patient-Oriented Research
The BC SUPPORT Unit is excited to bring you a new video series, called Perspectives on POR, which explores different views on patient-oriented research (POR) from individuals across BC. We spoke with patients, researchers, trainees, health care practitioners, and other stakeholder groups about their experiences with, and thoughts on, patient-oriented research to get an understanding of how POR impacts everyone involved.
The first video provides a snapshot of POR across the province.
To watch this video, click on Partnerships in Patient-Oriented Research
The second video is about the ways in which involving Indigenous communities in patient-oriented research can help to improve health care for all.

Doctors of BC
In the first episode of DocTalks, a new direction for BC’s primary health care system is explored. We’ve heard the names, but what really are patient medical homes and primary care networks? Host Dr Matthew Chow, with guests Drs Brenda Hefford and Shelley Ross, take a deep dive into the current primary care landscape to unpack ideas about:
– how patient medical homes and primary care networks relate to and work with one another — – what it means to adapt to system-wide change
– the benefits of a multidisciplinary, team-based care model of care
– how UPCCs enhance PCNs and increase access

In this talk, Wilkinson and Pickett explain how inequality affects us individually, altering how we think, feel and behave. They share the overwhelming evidence that material inequities have powerful psychological effects: when the gap between rich and poor increases, so does the tendency to define and value ourselves and others in terms of superiority and inferiority.
This talk was presented by the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Arts, and MASS LBP, with support from alumni UBC.
