CCHL Forum Webinar

Process and findings informing the development of a provincial emergency medicine network

September 24, 2019

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

We describe the process undertaken to inform the development of the recently launched British Columbia (BC) Emergency Medicine Network (EM Network) (www.bcemn.ca). Five methods were undertaken: (1) a scoping literature review, (2) a survey of BC emergency practitioners and EM residents, (3) key informant interviews, (4) focus groups in sites across BC, and (5) establishment of a brand identity. In describing this, we provide guidance and lessons learned for health leaders and others who aspire to establish similar clinical networks, whether in EM or other medical disciplines.
