May 16th is the 57th monthly meeting for Systems Thinking Ontario. The registration will be on Eventbrite.

System Mapping the Contexts of Health/Care

OCADU’s Design for Health MDes program has graduated its first cohort in 2018, with a number of final projects recently demonstrated at the GradEx exhibition. Our students have also developed extraordinary system maps of complex health and healthcare problematics, the synthesis map being one of the central methodologies learned in the program.

Professor Peter Jones invites visitors from healthcare as well as the systems thinking community to attend the next Systems Thinking Ontario to see and hear our students’ synthesis maps, as told by them, with brief overviews and Q&A for synthesis maps for:

  • Complex System of Chronic Pain
  • Systems of Organ Donation
  • Systems of Virtual Care
  • Assisted Reproductive Technology (and the waiting life-cycle)  from 2017
  • Canadian Cancer Diagnosis
