Every year, you and more than 1,100 other emergency medicine practitioners look after over 2 million patients in 95 emergency departments in BC. From urban to remote settings, you strive to provide the best care for your patients.
The sole purpose of the BC Emergency Medicine Network is to support you; it connects BC emergency practitioners with each other and with current, practical resources via four core programs. And these programs – Clinical Resources, Innovation, Continuing Professional Development, and Real-Time Support – integrate this support under one roof. In this way, the Network connects academics, policy makers, administrators, managers, and patients with front-line clinicians. The Network brings us together to ask and answer questions, share and improve resources, and robustly discuss the issues we face, ideally commenting, criticizing and contributing!
