As a family doctor, emergency care is practiced in a wide variety of settings – hospital-based emergency departments, urgent care clinics, disaster sites, or in-office. At BC Family Doctors, we recognize that all of these settings are high-pressure, fast-paced, and under significant stress in recent months.
BC Emergency Medicine Network (BCEMN) is connecting emergency practitioners and offering free real-time support province-wide. BCEMN brings doctors together to share knowledge, communicate, and support each other on topics such as community emergency medical response and disaster preparedness.
