What we do
The Specialist Services Committee (SSC) improves patient care by engaging physicians to collaborate, lead quality improvement and deliver quality services with SSC supports and incentives.
SSC is focused on three main areas:
- Developing Physician Capability: Help specialist physicians to develop leadership and quality improvement skills to effectively lead and champion change.
- Engaging Physicians & Partners: Strengthen relationships between physicians, health authorities and partners, so that collaboratively we can address health system challenges and support quality patient care.
- Transforming Care Delivery: Improve key patient care and health system priorities as delivered by specialist physicians.
See SSC brochure to learn about SSC supports for physicians.
Our Structure and Funding
The Specialist Services Committee (SSC) is one of four joint collaborative committees that represent a partnership of the Government of BC and Doctors of BC, and includes regular representation from health authorities. SSC formed in 2006 under the Physician Master Agreement to help Doctors of BC, BC government and health authorities collaborate on the delivery of specialist services and support improvement of the specialist care system in BC.
