About UptoDate Access and Funding
Funding for community-based specialist subscriptions is provided by the Specialists Services Committee (SSC), who is partnering with the Family Practice Services Committee (FPSC) to expand access to UpToDate as of January 2022.
Free subscriptions to UpToDate have also been made available by health authorities to specialists with active admitting privileges and by the FPSC to family doctors through their local division of family practice, and have now been expanded to community-based specialists.
The FPSC and SSC are two of four Joint Collaborative Committees that represent a partnership of Doctors of BC and the BC Government.
