The Divisions of Family Practice initiative is sponsored by the General Practice Services Committee
, a joint committee of the BC Ministry of Health
and Doctors of BC
The initiative was designed to improve patient care, increase family
physicians’ influence on health care delivery and policy, and provide
professional satisfaction for physicians.
The Pacific Northwest Division is an independent entity, whose goals are:
- to improve access to the benefits of primary health care
- quality improvement
- practice enhancement
- to inspire greater confidence in the health care system
Division provides formal family practice influence and leadership at
community, regional and provincial levels. They advocate for and
develop programs specifically tailored to the health care needs of the
area, and administer funding provided for each program.
