Locating Family Physician/Adult Specialist: Resources for Community Pediatricians & Other Physicians
The various Divisions of Family Practice GP4Me project included the development of “attachment mechanisms”, essentially ways and means to locate a family physician for those patients who do not have one. The Divisions do not maintain a “roster” of GPs, because that roster could change daily. However, many of the Divisions have established a process that could be helpful to pediatricians and their transitioning patients.
In addition to the “attachment mechanisms” work described above, Pathways is a web-based directory (now run out of the Divisions) to streamline referrals by connecting family doctors and specialists. Access to Pathways requires the pediatrician to register his/her own practice – for more information, please go to https://www.divisionsbc.ca/provincial/home.
The BC Pediatric Society will update this resource on a regular basis.
