Practice Support Program

Launched in 2007, the Practice Support Program (PSP) is a joint initiative of the Government of BC and Doctors of BC. The PSP delivers quality improvement services   with in-practice coaching and CME-accredited learning modules for improved clinical and practice management, Electronic Medical Record optimization, and patient care delivery.  

We provide training and support through a number of different channels.

PSP-Technology Group supports BC physicians and clinic staff preparing for, adopting, and optimizing EMRs.

Learning modules are physician-led group training sessions offered in communities throughout BC. These group sessions are followed by action periods during which PSP participants try out what they have learned in their own practice.

Practice coaching is ongoing support provided by PSP regional coordinators to help physicians (including those who have not participated in a PSP learning module) implement practice changes and sustain improvements.

Practice Self-Assessment provides GPs with a simple method for examining the needs of their clinical practice and identifying key areas for change or improvement. You and your staff can explore new ways of working to enhance the efficiency of your practice and your effectiveness as care providers.

Orientation includes materials to assist in PSP module delivery.

How’s Your Health BC? is a free web-based application through which patients can anonymously share information with their family physician via online surveys.
