The four Joint Collaborative Committees (JCCs), a partnership of Doctors of BC and the BC government, work collaboratively to lead system change. The committees—General Practice Services Committee, Specialist Services Committee, Shared Care Committee, and the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues—are unique partnerships in Canada. Physicians partner with government and work closely with health authorities to make system change while strengthening the role of physicians as leaders in innovation at provincial, regional, and community levels…Through the JCCs, physicians continue to lead a spectrum of quality improvement initiatives to energize and stimulate better practice environments for other physicians.
