IHP Profession-Based Networking Sessions

  • Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2017
  • (Official) Time: 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

For members to meet, mingle and share insights with peers in similar roles from across Ontario. Agendas for each session (including start time) will be developed by a Community of Practice Lead.

The AFHTO IHP Communities of Practice are a member-driven initiative, led by dedicated IHP volunteers from teams across the province and supported by AFHTO. They provide resources, advice and opportunities for staff and clinicians in primary care teams. The following groups and communities of practice will participate and host a networking session:

1. Administration

2. Chiropodist

3. Chiropractor

4. Health Promoter

5. Mental Health and Social Workers

6. Nurse (RN/RPN)


7. Nurse Practitioner

8. Occupational Therapist

9. Pharmacist

10. Physician Assistant

11. Physiotherapist

12. Psychologist


13. Quality Improvement Decision Support Specialists (QIDSS)

14. Registered Dietitian

15. Respiratory Therapist




This year, we’ll also come together to focus on a topic highlighting the importance of interprofessional team-based care after individual groups have met: the role of IHPs in improvement as a MEANS to identifying indicators of IHP contribution beyond number of patients seen/visits.
