We value learning. Our team engages in many different learning opportunities, including regular time to sharpen or extend our skills, dedicated time to deepen our justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion skills, and time to learn from professionals across the system. We share learning regularly across the team to promote cross-project learning.
We value being a distributed team. Our team works as virtual first, from locations across the province. When we need to get together, we do, but we default to virtual first. This means we use many different tech tools for communicating, meeting, collaborating, engaging, and ideating.
We value curiosity and professional nimbleness. We encourage each other to try new things, take on new challenges, explore new ideas, and develop new skills. We each have the opportunity to choose work that is interesting and challenging. And we can step into, or out of, roles and responsibilities as our interests change.
We value practical innovation. Our brand of innovation knows that innovation is most useful when it solves a real-world problem or fills a real-world gap in the primary care system.
We value taking action through learning, trying, testing, reflecting, re-learning. Our approach is iterative and we seek out opportunities where we can safely test out new things and then keep making them better.
We value evidence. We use evidence to inform what we know about ideas, topics, or concepts before we start to generate solutions. We use evidence in many forms: quantitative and qualitative; theoretical and lived experience; clinical and academic.
We value transparency. Our team works to embed transparency in decision making and collaborative work to ensure that all members of our team can have access to the information and knowledge about our work.
We value collaboration. We collaborate internally across our staff team and with organizations, government, clinics, individual healthcare practitioners, academics, researchers, patients, communities and Indigenous Nations.
We value self-management. Team members are trusted to manage themselves and their own work. We use various tools and processes to support transparency across the team and have a high degree of mutual autonomy.
