community of practice
The systems community of practice is an ongoing monthly virtual meeting open to anyone building their systems capacity. The sessions are typically 1.5hrs in duration. There is a mix of teaching and peer learning with topics such as developmental evaluation, specific systems tools, or network building and learning from projects being applied by the community.
Next Session: Monday December 7th 9:30 -11:00am Melbourne Time
Focus: Mental Wellbeing Systemic Inquiry
In our next systems community of practice we will be in conversation with Glenn Bury and Tiana Felmingham from the East Gippsland Primary Care Partnership.
In March 2019 the PCP established a mental wellbeing network to explore and learn about mental wellbeing in their community in order to surface and engage with leverage points for change. The work is ongoing and currently focused on engaging with young people to better understand their needs and ambitions, particularly related to social connectivity and mental wellbeing for communities impacted by drought and bushfire. Tiana and Glenn will share about their journey in systems thinking and using the systems change framework to improve outcomes for mental wellbeing in their community.
"since attending the community of practice… our team has quickly grasped the practical concept of systems, and furthering our understanding to consolidate and implement an approach to systems relevant to our community. our entire health promotion team now attend the webinars as a team; such is the value and benefit we place and have gained from our involvement and participation in the systems community of practice."
