INTRODUCING OUR NEW STRATEGIC PLAN
The BCCFP has a new Strategic Plan to guide our work for the next five years. Using your input from the recent member survey, the Board met last month to discuss the future and refresh our mission, vision and values. The planning session also included the development of four strategic priorities for 2017-20.
We are excited about the future and invite you to review the plan posted on our website.
CONGRATULATIONS AWARD RECIPIENTS!
The recipient of the BCCFP’s 2017 My Family Doctor Award, along with this year’s resident award recipients, were recognized at the recent spring Family Medicine Conference. Our awards program is designed to recognize individuals, and to promote and demonstrate the value of family medicine.
INTERESTED IN JOINING THE BOARD?
If you are interested in joining the BCCFP Board, we have three vacancies to fill this fall. It’s a great way to become more involved in the Chapter and help the BCCFP to realize our mission as the professional home of family medicine in BC.
A NEW WAY TO HONOUR A COLLEAGUE
If you know of a BCCFP member who deserves recognition, consider nominating him or her for the new BCCFP Coin. It’s easy to put someone’s name forward, and nominations will be considered throughout the year.
BCCFP REPORT CARD PROVIDES PERSPECTIVE ON IMPORTANT HEALTH ISSUES
The BCCFP’s pre-election report card offered British Columbians a family medicine perspective on key health issues. Media coverage included radio interviews with BCCFP President Dr. Christie Newton on CKNW and News1130, as well as a short article in the BC Medical Journal.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR FALL CPD
More than 300 members and guests attended our spring Family Medicine Conference earlier this month, and planning is already well underway for the fall program. The fall conference will take place October 28 and 29 at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver.
The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) and the Centre for Effective Practice (CEP) have joined forces to expand and disseminate an Ontario poverty tool, which the CEP developed with clinical leadership from Dr. Gary Bloch. This clinical tool provides specific resources to help family physicians and other health care providers screen for and respond to poverty concerns in their patients.
