Community Physician Health and Safety Program
The new provincewide Community Physician Health and Safety program will help support and enhance workplace health and safety for all physicians who work in the community along with their support staff. The program will provide tools and resources for community physicians to enhance the health and safety of their workplace, this includes psychological and physical health and safety, violence prevention, injury prevention, and more. It will also help ensure physicians can easily meet standards and requirements. This work is negotiated by Doctors of BC as part of the 2022 Physician Master Agreement.
We are collaborating with key partners on this initiative including the Ministry of Health, Doctors of BC, community physicians, and staff. Funding for this initiative was provided by the Physician Master Agreement negotiated by Doctors of BC and the Ministry of Health.
