The Rural Family Practice Anesthesiology Journal Club is aimed at FPAs who provide care in rural BC and in small urban areas and will cover five new and relevant family practice anesthesiology articles. The participants are both urban and rural from across the province. The moderators are anesthesiology physicians or specialists in rural practice. Each session will run for four (4) weeks. The session starts with an initial post on the journal club website by the Moderator, summarizing an academic article or a case study. Participants will then engage in discussion online responding to each others' comments on the website. This is asynchronous, so you can visit the website at any time that suits your schedule, using any device with an internet connection. To make the most of this learning experience we suggest you visit the website approximately twice per week to read others' comments and add to the discussion.

Simultaneously research, material, media, testimony and ceremony, Hexsa’am: To Be Here Always challenges the western concept that the power of art and culture are limited to the symbolic or metaphoric, and that the practices of First Peoples are simply part of a past heritage.

An Exhibition at the Museum Of Anthropolog, running till March 31st. Marking the Infinite features the work of nine Aboriginal women—Nonggirrnga Marawili, Wintjiya Napaltjarri, Yukultji Napangati, Angelina Pwerle, Carlene West, Regina Pilawuk Wilson, Lena Yarinkura, Gulumbu Yunupingu and Nyapanyapa Yunupingu—each from different remote regions of Australia. They are revered matriarchs and celebrated artists who are represented in the collections of the Australian National Gallery. Most of them make their Canadian debut at MOA with this breathtaking exhibition. The artists bring their ancient cultural knowledge into their contemporary artistic practice, and continue to create art to ensure their languages, land and knowledge survive in an increasingly digital world. Their works are steeped in the traditions of their communities and yet speak to the universal themes of our shared existence, revealing the continued relevance of Indigenous knowledge in understanding our time and place in this world.

Lillian Hung, PhD, RN Research Associate, CHÉOS Clinical Assistant Professor, School of Nursing, Faculty of Applied Science, UBC Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Gerontology, SFU Co-research with patient and family partners in a social robot study to improve dementia care Health care research in the field of geriatrics and gerontology can benefit from the active involvement of patient and family partners. Involvement may begin with identifying priorities, then move to formulate research questions and to plan the research methods, to data collection, and finally to analysis and knowledge dissemination. Actively engaging patients and families in co-research in dementia care is a novel practice that needs exploration. In this project, two patient co-researchers (persons living with dementia) and three family co-researchers worked with four clinicians (two physicians, a nurse, and an occupational therapist) to investigate the impact of a social robot in dementia care at Vancouver General Hospital. The research team pushes the boundaries on the potential to build capacity to engage patients in innovative roles and models of patient engagement. Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects.

While there is already ubiquitous evidence/data available regarding the Anthropocene, including climate change, environmental degradation, unsustainable water usage, deforestation and hothouse conditions, pollution, etc., the aim of this film series is to bring us to the “Now what?” a question that is not merely rhetorical but one that has local and global import.

Speaker: Dr. Evgeny Pakhomov Director and Professor, IOF Location: AERL Theatre (Rm. 120) Distributional range shift is a well-known species response to climate fluctuations leading to a poleward shift in their occurrence. While it may be physically possible for tropical and temperate species, in Polar Regions species are facing rapid contraction of their geographical range, facing new challenges associated with coastal environments. Circum-Antarctic habitats of the Southern Ocean key stone metazoans, the Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, and pelagic tunicate, Salpa thompsoni, are perfect to construct their present and predict their future distributions under various climate change scenarios. In the future Southern Ocean, a significant increase in interactions and competition between these species is predicted with potential “winners” and “losers” emerging that have implications for the high Antarctic ecosystem.

If yes — or if you just want find out more about learning analytics, data analysis, or visualization — then we’re looking for you to join us for HackUBC, UBC's Learning Analytics + Canvas API Hackathon taking place on March 29–30. Total beginners and experienced programmers welcome! During this two-day Hackathon, you’ll work hands-on with Canvas’s REST API, which allows you to access and modify your own learning data and create your own programs and scripts that interact with Canvas. Participants will form teams and work towards planning, designing, and building applications and dashboards aimed at improving student learning and experiences. At the end of the hackathon, your team will show off what you’ve come up with. Innovative proposals or designs could become part of UBC’s Learning Analytics Project. We’ll provide data, space, mentoring, coffee, meals, and snacks.
