Building Capacity Across Alberta

Since November 2012, Shift and representatives from Grande Prairie, AB have been collaborating on a one-year pilot project aimed at disseminating research findings and building knowledge and skills to initiate community-based primary prevention initiatives. The project draws upon principles of a community of practice model and includes a series of group discussions, reflection and presentations from field experts and academics.  While Grande Prairie is scheduled to wrap up their pilot project in June of 2013, Medicine Hat/Brooks is getting started with their own community of practice.
