May 23: Review of SSC Enhanced Recovery Bridge Fund applications begins

May 23, 2016

The Ministry of Health, health authorities, Specialist Services Committee (SSC), and BC Patient Safety and Quality Council are currently exploring the development of a provincial approach to support the sustainability and spread of Enhanced Recovery. During this development period, the SSC has approved a short term Enhanced Recovery Bridge Fund of $221,000 to be used by March 31, 2017 to:

  1. Maintain the Enhanced Recovery infrastructures already in place;
  2. Support the launch of Enhanced Recovery in new sites; and
  3. Help keep momentum going while provincial conversations take place.

Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis, as long as funds are available. Applicant sites are encouraged to submit one application with all anticipated activity for the fiscal year 2016/17, as funding may not be available for later submissions.

Review and approval of applications will begin on May 23, 2016.

Please see SSC Enhanced Recovery Bridge Fund post for more details and application form.
