Group Care Community of Practice
Thank you for your interest in group care. We hope you will join us in this global discussion!
What is a Community of Practice (CoP)?
It is a group of people who share a common concern, a set of problems, or an interest in a topic and who come together to fulfill both individual and group goals. In the CoP, we share best practices and create new knowledge by connecting and sharing with one another.
What is the GC_1000 Community of Practice (GC_1000 CoP)?
This CoP connects people who want to implement, sustain, and scale-up Group Care in their health care settings. These connections support all CoP members to share resources, strategies, and innovations so that collectively we can make Group Care a reality throughout the world. The GC_1000 CoP also will serve as a repository of resources and conversations that will be a source of information and inspiration for implementing group care.
What is GC_1000?
GC_1000 refers to Group Care for the First 1000 Days, dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of pregnant people, mothers, babies, and families worldwide through group care. GC_1000 (2020-2024) is a project that received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 848147. For more information, please consult the website Groupcare1000.com and watch this video summary of Group Care for the first 1000 days.
What is my commitment to the GC_1000 CoP? What does it cost?
Your participation in the GC_1000 CoP is voluntary and free-of-charge. You can enter the site just to explore resources or you can be more active, by engaging in discussions and posting questions about new issues of interest.
The Community of Practice thrives when there is active engagement. We encourage you to share resources as well as connect with colleagues around the world to collaborate, learn, and improve your own practices.
