In the Quality Team Coaching for Rural BC program (QTC4RBC), rural health care teams work with an ICF-certified coach to identify their values and priorities, develop their collective and individual skills, and access resources to help build a culture of safety, learning and quality that leads to positive patient and provider experiences and high-quality patient care. The program provides:  

  • An in-person coaching workshop;  
  • Up to four virtual team coaching sessions after the workshop and up to three one-on-one coaching sessions for leadership; 
  • A concierge service linking your team to programs and resources in BC; 
  • Financial support up to $40,000 that may be used for further team educational opportunities or to cover expenses of a quality improvement project. Note this funding is not eligible to be used for remuneration or backfill;  
  • Opportunity to work on a quality project of your choosing with mentorship from a quality advisor; 
  • This Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 21.75 Mainpro+ credits. 

Rural health care teams are eligible to apply for this program. Applications from RSA A or B communities will be prioritized. Interprofessional and leadership participation in the program significantly strengthens the application.
