Do you have issues or frustrations regarding your dealings with WorkSafeBC? Do you have ideas on how to improve the care for your WorkSafeBC patients both in terms of outcomes and efficiency? Do you have questions you would like to ask WorkSafeBC? If so, then Doctors of BC wants to hear from you.
Doctors of BC members may not be aware of two committees that serve as a means of communication and collaboration between Doctors of BC and WorkSafeBC:
• BCMA-WorkSafeBC Liaison Com-mittee addresses administrative concerns on behalf of Doctors of BC members or WorkSafeBC and seeks meaningful physician ad-vice and input into WorkSafeBC policies relevant to clinical practice. It is possible this committee is being underutilized by Doctors of BC members, so Doctors of BC would like to develop a better understanding of physicians’ satisfaction in their relationships with WorkSafeBC.
• BCMA-WorkSafeBC Projects and Innovation Committee will develop and prototype pilot projects aimed to improve disability management for injured workers. This committee is newly formed and will begin its process of gathering project ideas from Doctors of BC members in early 2014.
In our efforts to better understand the membership’s needs, we welcome your input and questions regarding your WorkSafeBC experiences and patients. If you have any issues, ideas, or questions for either committee to address, please contact Cindy Myles, Doctors of BC senior analyst, at firstname.lastname@example.org or via fax at 604 638-6054.
