Practice Support Program
The Practice Support Program (PSP) is a quality improvement-focused initiative that provides a suite of evidence-based educational services and in-practice supports to improve patient care and doctor experience. As an initiative of the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC), PSP supports doctors to work towards an integrated system of care via the patient medical home and primary care home model.
Working with local divisions of family practice and Regional Support Teams (RSTs), PSP offers its practice support services to family practices through flexible learning and support options. PSP’s tools and methodologies are standardized and align with provincial and/or national guidelines. Further information about PSP’s services, which include in-practice supports, learning modules, small group learning sessions, and GPSC’s leadership and development program - all aiming to support the GPSC’s future direction of primary care - are listed below.
Through its work, PSP has helped reduce patient wait times, increase practice efficiency, and improve health outcomes for patients.
Learning modules are physician-led group training sessions offered in communities throughout BC.
Small group learning sessions are groups of doctors who meet to discuss, discover, and share learnings about locally and clinically relevant quality improvement work.
The practice support network assists in the development of and leads the delivery of clinical modules to cohorts of peers as well as supports EMR optimization.
The LMDP is foundational program grounded in concepts to build or enhance leadership and management capacity.
