BC Family Doctors recently joined with Doctors of BC, the BC College of Family Physicians and community-based specialists to create The Doctor is In: Recommendations for expanding in-person care in community-based physician practices.
This was created by physicians for physicians. We wanted to simplify your work as you plan for the expansion of in-person services at your family practices across BC. It is based on work done by the Victoria and South Island Divisions of Family Practice, under the leadership of Dr. Jaron Easterbrook and Dr. Aaron Childs.
The document also compiles and summarizes official documents that were released on May 15, 2020:
● The Provincial Health Officer’s order from May 15th;
● The College’s Guidance on providing in-person care during COVID-19;
● The BCCDC’s COVID-19: Infection Prevention and Control Guidance for CommunityBased Physicians, Nursing Professionals and Midwives in Clinic Settings;
● WorkSafeBC’s Health Professionals: protocols for returning to operation.
This is intended to be a living document. It will continue to be revised as new information is available.
