The ISU offers a range of mapping supports that help clinical teams, Primary Care Networks, and communities work better together. Each method takes a person-centred approach using simulated cases (personas) to facilitate engagement and collaboration. We train healthcare leaders, coaches, and system partners from across BC to use these supports with the teams and communities where they work. What we hear from teams is that they are a practical, easy and flexible way to bring people together and result in stronger teams and creative solutions to gaps in community healthcare.
Support Services Mapping (in development): For those who are supporting primary care clinics in communities (e.g. across a Primary Care Network) including those who provide coaching, quality improvement, recruitment & retention services, Support Service Mapping uses simulated clinic personas to help groups collaboratively map out the wrap around support services available to maximize reach and impact while minimizing duplication.

- The ISU supports an active and informative Community of Practice (CoP) for anyone trained in these mapping methods. The CoP meets every 4-6 weeks and provides opportunities for further learning, practicing methods, adapting supports to new contexts, and connecting with others who are using mapping in their work. If you want to join the CoP, email us at email@example.com.
