Welcome to Shared Care

Collaborating to improve the patient experience and health of British Columbians


Since 2006, the Shared Care Committee has helped more than 2,500 family physicians and 240 specialist physicians to work together on over 240 projects across BC.

The mandate of this collaborative committee is to provide funding and project support to family and specialist physicians to improve the flow of patient care from primary to specialist services.

Formed in 2006 as part of the Physician Master Agreement, the Shared Care Committee is one of four joint collaborative committees that represent a partnership of the government of BC and Doctors of BC. Shared Care works closely with the other committees (General Practice Services Committee, Specialist Services Committee, Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues) but has its own distinct mandate and projects. Details of our work can be found under 'Initiatives' on this site.
