About Us

The Shared Care Committee is a joint committee of Doctors of BC and the BC Ministry of Health (MoH) working to improve patients’ health outcomes and their journey through the health care system.

Our goal is to deliver effective, integrated primary and community health care services by:

  • Understanding the working relationship between family physicians and specialists, while implementing pragmatic solutions to improve and support it;
  • Developing collaborative approaches that address barriers to care;
  • Embracing new technologies, service models, and payment methods;
  • Fostering patient self-management; and
  • Reducing unnecessary burdens on patients and their families.
