Community work

The Community Projects

The Community Wellness & Prevention Projects Health Services aims to improve the environmental, social and economic conditions that contribute to poor health, and support a quality of life that promotes the health and well-being of all residents, with special attention to those under served.

To accomplish this, we work in partnership with individuals, diverse communities, and organizations to increase individual knowledge and skills, educate and mobilize communities, build coalitions, and advocate for changes in organizational and public policy.

This philosophy has given rise to the Traditional Medicine (TM) Of Prevention, a creative proactive framework for developing prevention strategies and projects. The TM of Prevention provides a platform from which Traditional Practitioners can work in partnership with individuals, diverse communities and organizations to increase individual knowledge and skills, educate and mobilize communities, build coalitions and advocate for changes in organizational and public policy.

Participants will gain a better understanding of their own innovation skills and how to improve and develop the healing skills of those around them. They will develop an appreciation of how to apply process thinking in order to implement strategic visions for health care more effectively. They will also develop skills for patient-centred care and establishing a common vision for the care providers in their own organisations. They will explore the dynamics of strategic positioning in health care networks, and they will develop the seeds of ideas that can be applied in their home institutions to improve healthcare value in the populations that they serve. Key topics include:

  • Self-discovery and team-development skills for innovation
  • Value delivery (delivering on strategic goals)
  • Communication and the integrated care environment – from the perspectives of marketing/patient interaction and organisational strategy

Key benefits

  • Improve innovation skills and the ability to maximise the potential of staff
  • Understand the special nature of service operations: patient experience and behaviour, key process levers to improve value, quality and delivery of healthcare
  • Engage with tools that help to structure and innovate services for chronic care in a way that leads to measurable improvements for patients and community wellness
