THE TEAM: Community Practice, Quality and Integration – Community Practice and Quality

The Community Practice and Quality (CPQ) team provides staff support to the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC) (a partnership between Doctors of BC and the provincial government) and the Committee’s programs and initiatives targeted to transforming the primary care system. Under the direction of the GPSC, the CPQ team supports and empowers family doctors and primary care teams to provide the best patient care possible through practice improvement and adopting the attributes of the patient medical home model of care.

THE JOB: Training and Development, Project Coordinator, (Education)

Reporting to the Manager, Community Quality and Implementation (CQI), the Project Coordinator will support the ongoing design, provision, and evaluation of training for practice support field staff (including the Practice Support Program regional teams, Panel Assistants, and PSP Peer Mentors, aka the Practice Support Network). With the recent approval by GPSC of the PSP shift toward a Practice Facilitation approach, ensuring PSP field staff are appropriately trained in both required core competencies and program-specific areas is critical to ensuring a value-add experience with PSP services by physicians across the province. Additionally, in order to ensure physician and MOA peer mentors engaged with PSP are appropriately supported to deliver PSP services within the larger GPSC program portfolio, a consistent and provincial approach to training and upskilling existing field staff is required and the Project Coordinator will be responsible for the ongoing refinement of the PSP Practice Support Network Education and Development Strategy. Lastly, new field staff (providing enhanced practice supports for PMH/PCN activities as dictated by GPSC) will also require ongoing training to ensure they’re supporting family practices at the highest standard.
