Doctors of BC thanks the physicians who have participated in the engagement on primary care. Your commitment, passion, and clarity in presenting your proposed solutions are inspiring, and your feedback will be used to help us develop tangible, concrete solutions in our discussions with government as we together develop solutions to the crisis in primary care.
When we started this engagement, we committed to regular and open communications with our members. As part of that commitment, we are sharing with you the first What We Heard report that summarizes key themes from our first five sessions held June 22 to June 29, 2022.
We are continuing to collect member feedback through July 20 from an additional round of five virtual sessions including one for residents/new-to-practice physicians – and the online “Have Your Say” platform. We will share those inputs as well.
Some common themes from the first group of sessions are:
Other key themes included the need to improve access and support for use of EMRs, and to simplify and find solutions to physician recruitment. More on the key themes from the sessions can be found in our What We Heard Report.
We will be sharing another What We Heard summary report in the coming weeks to summarize themes from the second group of discussion sessions. At the conclusion of the engagement, we will conduct a deep-dive analysis of all member feedback from this engagement process, to help to determine priority actions for our organization and to move forward to government.
