Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice

Project Objectives

Primary Objectives

The goals of the In-patient Care Initiative are to:

  • Support KB GPs in delivering in-patient care
  • Better compensate and support family physicians practising in the community as a means of encouraging them to care for their own patients (and patients without FPs) when they are admitted to the hospital
  • Ensure patient care is well coordinated and comprehensive when they are transitioning between hospital and FP offices in the community.

Secondary Objectives

  • Retain a critical mass of family physicians delivering in-patient care services in KB
  • Enhance collaboration between FPs , and between FPs and Interior Health.
