Practice Support Program

The Practice Support Program (PSP) fosters transformation in patient care by helping physicians build capacity in their practices through the use of innovative clinical and practice management tools and strategies.

The PSP offers a flexible service delivery model that works in collaboration with increased partnerships with divisions of family practice and health authority Regional Support Team (RST) Leadership.

A joint initiative of the Government of BC and Doctors of BC, the PSP was initially a program of the General Practice Services Committee. Today, the PSP also receives support from two additional collaborative committees: the Shared Care Committee and the Specialists Services Committee.

In addition to support for GPSC initiatives such as A GP for Me and Residential Care, here are the services PSP offers:

Learning Modules

Learning modules are physician-led group training sessions offered in communities throughout BC.

Small Group Learning Sessions

Small group learning sessions are groups of doctors who meet to discuss, discover, and share learnings about locally and clinically relevant quality improvement work.

Peer Support Network

The peer support network assists in the development of and leads the delivery of clinical modules to cohorts of peers as well as supports EMR optimization.
