About 400 people registered – including 80 specialist physicians. They all took part in the first ever Joint Collaborative/Clinical Committees (JCCs) Showcase this February in Vancouver.
Participants shared the successes and lessons learned from the range of collaborative work being done in partnership with Doctors of BC, the provincial government, health authorities and local communities.
They were encouraged to share the information from the sessions to expand the work in their local communities – with the goal of quality improvement. As Vancouver psychiatrist, Matthew Chow noted, “I expected to see a lot of health care administrators, instead I was so pleased to walk in and see so many of my physician colleagues – ones who actually touch the patients.”
The Showcase was a pre-day event held as part of the BC Quality and Patient Safety Council’s annual Forum. Many of the SCC’s initiatives and their leads took part in the Showcase. Programs discussed included: Coordination of Care, which informed about the Inherited Arrhythmia Program, Prostate Cancer Survivorship Program and Fragile X Clinic. Some sessions focused on programs supporting surgical improvements including Enhanced Recovery and Fracture Hip Redesign. A breakout session took place on the new enhanced SSC fees, while another featured a quality improvement project that is part of the SSC’s Regional QI Initiative.
