BackgroundWhat is the Pentagram Partnership? Charles Boelen authored a paper for the WHO in 2000 around the partnership Pentagon/Pentagram. This has subsequently become the foundational model, accepted by all medical schools in Canada as a framework for socially accountable health education. We have adapted this by adding a 6th partner to use this framework for socially accountable health system change. At this meeting you can expect a casual environment with structured conversation covering the following four topics:
- Culturally Safe Care: Discussions about community led, culturally safe training and continuous learning.
- Transportation: Discuss the transport of patients with a view to decreasing the amount of time it takes from the moment of an accident/incident to the arrival of the patient at the first level of care. (e.g., hospital)
- Virtual Care: (bringing services to the patient using technology) Discuss the increase of local healthcare provider capacity through the access of resources linked to a provider network in a larger centre.
- Team-based Care: With the provincial roll out of Primary Care Networks, we need to understand what team-based care means for rural, remote and First Nations communities.
