At least once a year the HCCFC organizes a Learning Exchange in which one or more of our member co-ops introduces one or more of their Best Practices or Best Programs. Sometimes the program or practice can be adopted exactly as it is presented, more often it either can be adapted for different contexts or sparks a new idea. Good presentations can be repeated as training sessions across the country, and even beyond.
Hans Kai© was introduced by Nor’West Co-op in Winnipeg and Québec in 2012. Training was delivered in Moncton in 2013, Québec in 2014 and Victoria in 2015.
CareForce introduced their Co-op Orientation program in Moncton in 2013.
In Québec in 2014 we also heard an inspirational mini-presentations from health co-ops around the globe.
To find our international colleagues please see the IHCO’s comprehensive map of health and social services worldwide.
A Learning Exchange is included in the plans for every AGM.
