Update from the BC Emergency Medicine Network

submitted by the BC Emergency Medicine Network

The BC EM Network connects BC emergency practitioners with each other and over 280 
BC-relevant clinical resources. Within the network you’ll find peers sharing knowledge and supporting one another with information to improve patient care. The Network currently has 729 members and is growing!


Rural Input
Our Rural Working Group provides a critical rural perspective and input on Network clinical resources. In collaboration with RCCbc, 14 rural members from across the province review and modify the resources when necessary, to ensure are relevant to all BC practitioners, no matter where they practice.

Patient Input
Our Patient Partners are providing input on all 86 Patient Information Sheets found on the Network website – a first in BC! The revised sheets will be accessible to all emergency practitioners and patients across BC through the EM Network website. Next step will be to ensure they are translated accordingly into additional languages.

Virtual Real-Time Support
Virtual Health enables BC emergency practitioners to connect digitally and provide on-demand consultation to provide better emergency patient care. The EM Network Real-Time Support Program is working to make virtual support available for all emergency practitioners across BC and is forming a working group to determine clinical best practices to guide this new way of delivering emergency care. If you are interested in providing input on how this rapidly growing field can benefit EM practitioners, please contact Sharla Drebit, Network Manager, at sharla@bcemergencynetwork.ca.
