SSC Enhanced Recovery Fund Recipients

The Specialist Services Committee (SSC) is a joint committee between Doctors of BC and the BC government, with regular representation from health authorities. SSC formed in 2006 under the Physician Master Agreement to help the 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. www.sscbc.ca

With the close of the SSC-sponsored BC Enhanced Recovery Collaborative in mid-January and Ministry of Health-led conversations about a potential provincial plan underway, the SSC has approved a short term Enhanced Recovery Bridge Fund of $221,000  to boost or supplement a BC site’s current resources and strategies during this transition phase.

The SSC Enhanced Recovery Bridge Fund, to be used by March 31, 2017, aims to help:

  1. Maintain the Enhanced Recovery infrastructures already in place;
  2. Support the launch of Enhanced Recovery in new sites and service lines; and
  3. Keep momentum going while conversations about a provincial approach to Enhanced Recovery take place.

The Enhanced Recovery Fund was met with an overwhelming response from interested sites. The SSC is pleased to announce that it has approved funding for 22 hospitals from across BC. Funds will support activities not only in elective colorectal surgery – where most sites start their Enhanced Recovery programs – but also emergency general surgery, hepatobiliary, gynecology, and urology procedures. New pathways and accompanying tools across all sites will be shared on this website as they become available.

Congratulations to the Fund Recipients:
