Living Well

Project Description

This video was created for the First Nations Health Council (FNHC) and was shown at Gathering Wisdom X conference in May 2018.
Often, what are described as the ‘determinants of health’ are really the determinants of disease -- through this work we will take a strengths-based approach, that will connect the work being done by the FNHC, all the regional representatives, and health directors to the ‘social determinants of resilience’, put in its most simple terms:  What it means to be Living Well.
 

Strong Medicine

By weaving together Indigenous knowledges of culture and wellbeing and Western knowledge of HIV testing and treatment, this video shares accurate information about HIV testing and treatment. It encourages people to get tested and to start, resume or stay on HIV treatment for their own health and wellbeing.This video is a positive and supportive educational tool for all Indigenous people living with HIV and those affected by HIV. It can be viewed in its entirety or in chapters.

Antibiotic Wise: Say NAAAH! Campaign

Project Description

We have teamed up with Antibotic Wise and the BC Centre for Disease Control on their "Say NAAAH!" Campaign. It is important to only use antibiotics when they are needed. While antibiotics are warranted for some dental procedures, many toothaches and oral infections do not require antibiotics. However, based on your procedure and medical history, your dentist may recommend an antibiotic. Always let your dentist know about any medical conditions or changes to your health. In addition, antibiotics do not work for viruses like the flu. These two campaigns have been getting high visibility on the Vancouver transit platforms and in buses! We have also created several videos.
 

Coyotes Food Medicine

Project Description

Storytelling has always been a traditional way to share knowledge and wisdom. Now we have new tools to share old ways, and to take on new problems. In July 2016, Secwepemc Elders were asked to help develop a teaching story about prescription medicine, This story reflects some of the cultural teachers/animals of the Secwepemc’ulcw people.
From this conversation the story of Coyote’s Food Medicines emerged. Coyote is on a mission to collect medicines - but will everything go as planned? Often stories include the Trickster character, who can be both humorous and heroic, helping to teach through its mix of cunning, foolishness and ambition.

NaloxoneTraining.com

Project Description

St. Paul's Hospital wanted a tool to deliver consistent, high quality Take Home Naloxone training that could also be used by other dispensing sites across the province, as well as people at home. We teamed up with technology partner Animikii to create an easy-to-use web app to teach people how to respond to an opioid overdose and get a certificate of completion that can be redeemed for a kit.

Partners: Developed by St. Paul’s Hospital Emergency Department with support from St. Paul’s Foundation, and created by Hello Cool World and Animikii in association with Toward the Heart and the St. Paul’s Addictions Team

Naloxone Wakes You Up

Project Description

We created a video that trains youth how to recognize and respond to an overdose for the BC Centre for Disease Control's Take Home Naloxone program. We also worked with Inner City Youth to put together an art booklet based on a research project with street-involved youth in Vancouver who were asked about their experience with the program. Some of their meaningful comments are featured alongside illustrations by youth artists. Since these projects overlapped, we were able to work the youths' material into the video as well. Read a blog post for more details.
