Who We Are

The Centre for Collaboration, Motivation and Innovation (CCMI) is a not-for-profit organization based in British Columbia that helps individuals and organizations create partnerships that improve health and well-being.

What We Do

Teaching practical skills that foster partnerships:
Our workshops are designed to teach practical, hands-on, self-management support techniques. We believe strongly in empowering people with knowledge and with concrete skills to apply it in their context. CCMI’s skill-building workshops include:

  • Brief Action Planning
  • Health Literacy
  • Cultural Competence
  • Shared Decision Making
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Patient Engagement
  • Social Determinants of Health
  • Brief Interventions.

Implementing strategies for system-wide change:
CCMI has consulted and coached systems across Canada, the U.S. and internationally, providing quality improvement support for system redesign aimed at integrating self‐management support techniques into patient care. Our expertise include:

  • chronic disease management,
  • care coordination, and
  • patient‐centered medical home.

Facilitating collaboration in new ways:
Our work is premised on a person‐centered, population‐based approach that ensures the system of care addresses its community’s needs wherever they are with managing their health. We offer engagement opportunities to suit the needs of health care teams, organizations, individuals and the general public.
