Practice Support Program

The Practice Support Program (PSP) is a quality improvement-focused initiative that delivers educational and in-practice support services to family practices in BC.  This collaborative effort between the Government of BC and Doctors of BC aims to improve patient care and physician experience through provision of learning modules, small group learning sessions, peer coaching, and leadership and management development.

UBC CPD and PSP are partnering to lead an evolution of PSP's Learning Modules. As with PSP's existing Learning Modules, education will be physician-led, localized and offer follow-up support. The new educational offerings will respond to recent demands for flexible, accessible education that fits into a physician’s busy schedule. Based on adult learning principles and the latest research in CPD and quality improvement, these shorter, versatile learning units will be efficient, relevant and responsive to physician needs.

The new educational offerings will be released in stages, from mid-2018 to 2019. Topics will include:

  • Chronic Disease Management (including COPD, Heart Failure, Diabetes, Hypertension)
  • End of Life Care
  • Pain Management
  • Advanced Access/Office Efficiency

More information on this partnership will be available soon. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about this program.
