BCCFP part of Patient’s Medical Home implementation in BC

British Columbia is now moving forward with changes to primary care delivery based on the key concepts of the CFPC’s Patient’s Medical Home (PMH) and the Ministry of  Health’s primary care home (PCH).

During this time of planning and transition, the BCCFP will be ensuring that the professional voice of family physicians is heard. We will be working with our partners on the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC) to provide input into the design and implementation process.

The GPSC website provides more detail on the planned transformation of primary care, including the BC approach to both PMH and PCH.

In addition, BCCFP President Christie Newton is a member of the CFPC’s PMH Steering Committee. Although the CFPC has already developed extensive PMH resources for family physicians, Dr. Newton will advocate for any additional resources that may be required to support PMH implementation here in BC.

Some of the CFPC’s PMH resources are linked below. The CFPC Patient’s Medical Home site also has extensive information, including progress toward PMH in other provinces, as well as information for policy makers and patients.
