BC Emergency Medicine Network Publication

The first publication on the BC Emergency Medicine Network, “The British Columbia Emergency Medicine Network: A Paradigm Shift in a Provincial System of Emergency Care” is available online in Cureus, an open-access medical journal (download full PDF here). The paper, written in collaboration with our patient partners, provides an overview of the EM Network, including its background, purpose, programs, anticipated evolution, and impact on the BC health care system.

The sole purpose of the Network is to support you; it connects BC emergency practitioners with each other and with current, practical resources. As physicians working in emergency medicine, your engagement is essential to defining clinical and health system problems; proposing, implementing, and refining solutions; evaluating the effectiveness of new guidelines and policies; and integrating academic and clinical emergency medicine.
