Team Mapping Facilitation Training

As primary care network communities move toward implementation, we are working in collaboration with the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC), a partnership between the Ministry of Health and Doctors of BC, and UBC’s Innovation Support Unit (ISU) to develop and refine new and existing supports for primary care teams.

What is Team Mapping?

The ISU has developed the team mapping method to help developing team-based care initiatives (e.g. primary care networks and patient medical homes) explore and describe how teams could be structured. These highly interactive sessions can help groups describe how roles work together in team-based care projects. The sessions also help build a sense of cohesion and consensus across a group, as participants together explore team structure and the processes involved in the delivery team-based care.

In March, the ISU offered planning support to interested wave 1 communities in the form of facilitated team mapping. Given the demand and the desire to build capacity in communities to support the transition to team-based primary and community care, the BCPSQC and the ISU will be offering team mapping facilitation training and mentorship to interested PCN communities to support individuals to facilitate this mapping in their local communities. Funded by the GPSC, this train-the-trainer approach will include a focus on team mapping preparation, the facilitation of team mapping sessions and the analysis and reporting process that allows communities to build the findings from team mapping processes into learning and action.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Learn about the team mapping method, the provincial context for the use of the method and roll out of coaching supports
  • Learn about the different benefits of team mapping at various stages of team formation
  • Engage in a 3-stage team mapping process simulation during the workshop
  • Develop team mapping preparation, session facilitation, and analysis/reporting skills
  • Develop an understanding of the core roles and tasks that are most frequently central to team mapping discussions
  • Apply the ISU Team Mapping tools in a simulation
  • Develop a mentorship partnership with the ISU to support future team mapping in communities
