BCMJ: Responding as a community to the pandemic.

In recent years, we’ve grown increasingly accustomed to emergency situations in BC. Forest fires, flooding, and other natural disasters are on the rise, and the province’s hospitals have been developing their responses to these events and their effects on public health.

Dr Graham Dodd, Physician lead for the Thompson Region Division of Family Practice (TRDFP) describes how their Shared Care project team worked with the health authority to integrate community care providers into emergency planning in response to the pandemic. Read the story in the BCMJ.
