Team Up! Webinar: Virtual Team-Based Care

Team Up! Team-Based Primary & Community Care in Action is a webinar and podcast series that aims to connect individuals and teams, identify tools to apply to current work underway and share experiences in team-based care across the province.

During our May 16th Team Up! Webinar we learned how to optimize virtual team-based care services. Through a qualitative analysis of focus group interviews with patient partners and clinicians we brought some key themes that were identified to explore how you can apply these learnings to your own settings.
