PESCCI MSA and Island Health together spreading holiday cheer
Seasons greetings to PESCCI members
As 2018 is coming to a close soon, I am reflecting back as to the launch of PESCCI. This has been a challenging yet fulfilling transition period. During 2018 we have had the privilege of sponsoring 14 physician-led projects. Our focus for 2019 is Physician Wellness, and we are pleased to have 2 new projects initiated in that direction. We welcome any ideas, and are pleased to provide information to any physicians who may be thinking of an improvement or filling a need.
1st AGM as an incorporated membership.
Development of communications with the launch of the PESCCI newsletter.
Collaboration between our executive board and Island health to provide improved lines of communications.
Employing 2 part-time staff members.
I look forward to our continued and new collaborative efforts into the future.
I am very excited and optimistic about 2019.
On behalf of the Executive Board, I wish you and your families peace, prosperity, health and happiness this holiday season.

TOUCHPOINTS in the Comox Valley
The Comox Valley is the first canadian training site for Touchpoints! Touchpoints is a developmental and relational framework for working with families. It seeks to improve connection within families and between families and their providers. It is based on the work of Dr. T Barry Brazelton, a prominent Developmental Pediatrician from Boston Children’s Hospital. The goal is to improve connection, as we know that this is the best way to improve the health of children, particularly when we know there have been adverse childhood experiences for themselves or their parents.
