Family Doctors:  Standing Up and Standing Out

We are happy to be co-hosting a family medicine conference in Victoria with the BC College of Family Physicians (BCCFP) on April 5 and 6, 2019.

Ordinary family doctors are extraordinary.  We provide excellent clinical care and advocate for our patients in a fragmented health system. We walk beside our patients through their medical and personal struggles.  The mantle of responsibility weighs heavy on our shoulders.

On April 5 and 6, we invite you to join your colleagues in a celebration of the many roles of today’s family doctors.  This two-day conference has a unique program of plenary and breakout sessions that will help you with your day-to-day working life.

  • Hear from other BC family doctors about how their advocacy has improved the system for patients and physicians
  • Speak with family practice leaders from SGP, BCCFP, GPSC, and Doctors of BC about how primary care in BC is changing and how you can influence that change
  • Improve your advocacy and professional skills, including social media use, working with your health authority, billing for uninsured services, and burnout prevention
  • Update your clinical knowledge on topics such as opioid deprescribing, insomnia management, hypertension targets, medical cannabis, and MAiD
