Engagement is the difference between showing up – and sticking around. Between looking and buying. Trying and doing. Listening and learning. Chasing and leading . . . Engagement is what happens when an activity attracts and holds a person’s attention. It’s the state of being pleasurably immersed in doing something – and wanting to keep doing it. Of being disappointed when the experience is over.

Patient Engagement

The BC Emergency Medicine Network places a huge premium on engaging patients, getting their advice and perspective so that we can better plan and implement programs. To do so, we have dedicated patients who sit on the Advisory Committee and collaborate on the planning and operations of the Network.

We are also leading in empowering patients and the public in such a large enterprise and we look forward to seeing how their insights can mold the Network to make it relevant to them.

Members Council

We are currently forming the Members Council so that members can be part of this more engaged team of emergency practitioners from urban, rural, and remote areas across BC. This group will provide regular input and advice to the Advisory Committee and will champion physician engagement in their local communities.
