Northern Health’s Physician Quality Improvement program has a brand new podcast - Qualitycast North hosted by Dr. Shyr Chui!

Episode one, featuring Dr. Denise Jaworksky, is now up. This episode focuses on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) group medical visits, and how they use patient education to reduce hospital admissions and emergency room visits.

Dr. Denise Jaworsky, an internal medicine specialist practicing in Terrace BC, details her experiences helping patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease better understand and manage their condition by implementing an interprofessional team group visit approach in the community. She also shares how an unlucky day on the ski hill led to a career in medicine, discusses the importance of equity to health care quality, and reflects on the importance of community.
