Collaborative Practice Workshop for Maternity Care Providers

May 26-27, 2017

Are you curious about a collaborative approach to enhancing perinatal care? Do you worry about the sustainability of maternity services in your rural community? 

Perinatal Services BC and Shared Care are hosting an Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Development Workshop for Primary Maternity Care Providers. 

This one-and-a-half day workshop will provide an interactive setting for shared dialogue and learning about interprofessional collaborative primary maternity care in BC. If you are looking to establish an interprofessional collaborative practice in your community or to develop your collaborative knowledge and skills, this workshop will be an excellent opportunity for you to:

  • gather information, tools, and resources;
  • be part of cultivating a provincial community of practice; and
  • network with colleagues from around the province. 

Seating will be limited for this event. CME accreditation for this workshop is in progress. More details will be released in the coming weeks. Email the organizers at to receive updates and registration information. 

This workshop is a joint initiative between Perinatal Services BC and Shared Care.

The 5As of Healthy Pregnancy Weight Gain is a toolkit intended to help primary care practitioners discuss and manage gestational weight with their patients. The 5As (Ask, Assess, Advise, Agree, and Assist) framework ensures sensitive, realistic, measureable, and sustainable obesity management strategies that focus on improving health and well-being, rather than simply aiming for numbers on a scale. 

Free, accredited online training is available for family physicians, obstetricians, nurse practitioners, midwives, dietitians, and all primary care providers working in perinatal care. Training covers how to use the 5As counselling technique for discussing healthy pregnancy weight gain with patients.
