Joint Collaborative Committees

At this time, the majority of JCC physician wellness resources support peer-to-peer support to strengthen competencies, skills, and confidence, reduce isolation, loneliness, and stress, and improve psychological well-being.

In 2021, the JCCs provided significant funding to the Physician Health Program (PHP) of BC to support provincial programs and resources including CBT skills training (see below), networks of trained physicians, and matching of physicians with their own primary care provider. More details to come.

To learn more about physician wellness supports, doctors can connect with their division, medical staff association or RCCbc, or visit Doctors of BC’s website.
