VANCOUVER, Nov. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - The BC College of Family Physicians has introduced a new award to recognize excellence among family doctors in the province - "My Family Doctor."
Announced during Family Doctor Week, the "My Family Doctor" award will celebrate the doctor-patient relationship, which is known to help improve patient satisfaction and health outcomes.
Family doctors care for all parts of the body and mind, all diseases, all ages and genders, including preventative care, primary mental health care, and treatment of most illnesses and injuries.
"A good doctor is a partner to their patients, working with them throughout their life to help achieve their health goals. It's a relationship based on trust and good communication," says Dr. Patricia Mirwaldt, BCCFP President-Elect.
If you value your relationship with your family doctor and the impact they've made in your life, share your story at www.bcfamilyphysicians.com. Nominations close March 31, 2014 and the winner will be announced in June.
