Type 2 Prevention & Management
It is estimated that over 90% of diabetes cases are related to Type 2 Diabetes. The most prominent risk factors for Type 2 Diabetes relate to lifestyle factors and it is increasingly being classified as a preventable and/or reversible disease.
IHSTS, in partnership with The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council, are leading the formation of a network focused on sharing, developing and applying innovative practices to improve outcomes for people living with type 2 diabetes across BC.
BC Centre for Palliative Care
BC Centre for Palliative Care works with partners in the health system and community along with researchers and policy makers to accelerate the spread of innovations and best practices in palliative care.
In addition to projects that IHSTS initiates and funds itself, our organization also serves a stewardship role – as requested by the BC Ministry of Health (MoH) – for selected emerging initiatives. IHSTS provides the necessary support and oversight for MoH-funded projects as they develop. Over time, these projects may move towards a preferred future governance.
