Primary Health Care Physicians in British Columbia

Primary Health Care Physicians in British Columbia

Abstract

his paper describes the population of PHC, PHC-related and specialist physicians in British Columbia deemed to be in active clinical practice, assesses temporal patterns of supply of this workforce, and describes the demographic characteristics and geographic dispersion of physicians in three time peri- ods. At the request of the BC Ministry of Health, we analyzed data from fiscal years that predate the Health Transition Fund (1996/97) and Primary Health Care Transition Fund (2000/01), and from the most recent period for which com- plete data were available (2004/05).
This report relies on new methodologies developed to generate more precise estimates of the number of physicians engaged
in clinical practice and most likely to deliver PHC in British Columbia. We rely, and build, upon previous methodologi-
cal innovations in the province, particularly work by the BC Ministry of Health to describe physicians according to their type of practice.
