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

On social determinants and health:

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.
