Collaborate on health in BC – Stories of physician-led innovation

February 8, 2021

Doctors around BC are leading and advocating to improve our health care system through innovation and team-work. To highlight their achievements over the last year, Doctors of BC has launched its Collaborate on Health in BC magazine, available online and being mailed to members along with their BC Medical Journal this month.

This edition of the magazine, to be published annually, curates stories about how doctors worked with health care partners to champion and innovate ways to deliver the best care to patients across BC in 2020 – all while navigating the unusual and challenging times during a global health pandemic.

Featured stories include:JCC%20magazine

  • Patient care toolbox expands with virtual care
  • Hospital at Home: Physicians lead the way to bring program to BC
  • COVID-19 and mental health: Advocating for children and youth

All of the initiatives featured in the magazine are supported by the Joint Collaborative Committees (JCCs) a partnership of Doctors of BC and the BC government.  

For nearly 20 years, doctors have been leading and advocating to improve BC’s health care system through the four JCCs: Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues, General Practice Services Committee, Shared Care Committee, and Specialist Services Committee.
