The Clinical Coaching for Excellence program supports rural family physicians and nurses in their clinical practice through personalized and context-specific coaching. The program aims to improve confidence and comfort with clinical and non-clinical skills, improve quality of care, establish and enhance collaborative peer-to-peer relationships, and support a clinical coaching culture in rural BC.
The program enables providers to choose their own coach, who provides constructive support including direct observation of the participants’ usual clinical context. The scope and structure of the program is driven by the community and practitioners’ needs. Coaching support is offered over the course of a year, and all participants are encouraged to continue the relationships after the year is completed.
Confidential feedback provided by coaches supports participants in designing specific and actionable goals, encouraging continuous quality improvement. Feedback is provided in a non-evaluative manner, and kept separate from the College’s and Health Authority’s privileging process.
The Clinical Coaching for Excellence program is made up of a number of separate streams focused on different clinical areas and approaches to coaching:
- Family Practice Anesthesiology
- Rural Surgery and Obstetric Networks
- Emergency Medicine Peer Coaching
- Virtual Peer Coaching
