Save the Dates: Stepped Care Communities of Practice (CoP) Webinar Series

Starting Tuesday November 28, I will be hosting free monthly Stepped Care 2.0 Communities of Practice (CoP) webinars, one for small post-secondary schools (5000 students or less) and the other for medium and large schools (above 5,000 students). Given that the model is also getting traction in non-PSE sectors (adult public mental health care, primary care and youth integrated hubs), I welcome participation from those working in the health care sector.

Below are the agenda and access details for the webinar series. For those working in health sector rural clinics  the small schools CoPs may be more valuable, while those practicing in larger centres might find the large school webinars more appropriate. Join us if you can. We will be scheduling more in the new year!

Here are some details on content and format for the coming months (links for meeting access will be posted here in an update in December):

Structure & Process:

  • Except for this month, webinar topics will be informed by member responses to surveys that will go out periodically with calendar invites. Please click this link to begin survey for December and January topics.
  • The webinars will begin with 10-15 minutes of content.
  • As much as possible, we will encourage interaction – sometimes we will post polls in the webinars to tap into where participants are in their design or implementation processes.
  • We will encourage a Q and A roundtable format.
  • If there are a lot of participants, please use chat window to get our attention, ask questions or indicate your desire to share experiences – successes or challenges.
  • Goal is to tap the collective wisdom of the group so learning about the innovations and successes from everyone is important.
  • If you have ideas on how to improve our webinars, or there is a topic you would like to present on, please let me know at pcornish@mun.ca

  1. Wonderful stuff Peter! In some of your previous presentations, you have provided a blank model outline for folks to begin filling in on their own. Could this please be added to the blog?

    I found that exercise to be very helpful, as it allowed me to realize how accessible and applicable this approach is within my existing services (individual, group, workshops, etc.), improved my awareness and intentionality behind referrals to currently offered steps of service, and brought into focus the steps of care that need to be bolstered with additional resources (self-help, platforms, etc.).

    Perhaps folks could be encouraged to participate in a “Stepped Care Challenge”, whereby they simply plot their existing services into the model and share their experience of this exercise?

    1. Great idea Nick! I’m going to work on a fillable template and then maybe we could work together on drafting wording for a challenge message and campaign.
