“A key characteristic of practical wisdom: A wise person knows the proper aims of the activity they are engaged in. They want to do the right thing to achieve these aims — they want to meet the needs of the people they serve.” — Practical Wisdom, Barry Schwartz and Kenneth Sharpe

In my last report as chair of the Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice, I have tried to focus on ways our Division can better serve our members and the patients we care for. I don’t believe it is about creating more incentives or protocols. I believe it is about fostering relationships that lead to fairness, generosity, integrity, perseverance, thoughtfulness and kindness. Through the activities of our Division, we have seen many relationships rejuvenated and new ones created. We have encouraged more involvement and understanding of the dynamics of our Division and our community. This increased awareness has allowed us to better serve our members and care for our patients. Opportunities have been created in as many ways as possible to achieve these lofty goals. We have hosted many events that connected members, spouses, partners, MOAs, consultants, administrators, allied health workers and patients. These connections must be maintained and strengthened to increase our awareness of the needs and opportunities for improvements that are available. We have to look outside our self-interests and see from our patients’ perspectives both the care we provide and our medical institutions. Only then can we truly understand the best ways to best support our patients and our colleagues. It is not easy to put our selfinterests aside and use our will and skill to embrace the proper aims of our honorable

profession. Through our Division, we have a unique opportunity to create a social network in the Ridge Meadows region that can promote the health of our community and our members. Let’s nurture and encourage this opportunity to create a new level of excellence. So dream big, be bold, get involved and let’s make something spectacular happen. It will not only help our community live well but will also be a key to our own happiness. Finally, I would like to thank our administrative team, Treena and Leanne; our Division’s board, and especially the executive, Drs. Neufeld, Bhatti, and Luitingh, for the great privilege and satisfaction of working together with them. Dr. Ken Burns Chair

Message from the Division Director Do you know how fun and interesting it is working with family physicians? Not only am I able to feel and hear all about your determination for helping your patients, I get to learn about your passion for making a larger impact in improving primary care and physician satisfaction for your peers right here in Ridge Meadows. And, although this change may start in Ridge Meadows, I know many of our strategies, initiative models and learnings are used throughout the province amongst the other 32 divisions. In addition to the incredibly interesting and rewarding work I have the opportunity to do, I also get to have fun watching your golf swings, cycling the dyke with you at our fundraiser or enjoying a glass of wine with you at one of our events and hearing all about your families. I could not be prouder to work with such a dedicated board of directors and membership. We talk a lot about building “community” in Ridge Meadows and how we have the strength in our 83 members to move our projects forward, yet small enough to not get caught up in politics. Our medical community is often admired for how we work together so collegially and support one another’s successes. You should all be proud of your contributions to make our medical community a better place.

Treena Innes

In the last year we have: • Created policies • Strategically planned and executed members’ priorities • Re-surveyed new member ideas • Engaged members to contribute on committees and advisory groups • Continued to strengthen our board of directors with three new members • Built new collaborative relationships with health care and community care providers • Created new partnerships with community stakeholders who support our work. The foundation we have built this past year will be instrumental in moving the Division forward in the future work of the A GP for Me initiative for our community. There are many more proud moments in our future. I look forward to making more of those moments with you as we grow our important Division work in Ridge Meadows this upcoming year and beyond.

Ridge Meadows Division Initiatives Maternity Clinic Operation Initiative Goals/Description: Ensure program sustainability and continued access to primary care maternity services for patients requesting delivery of their baby at Ridge Meadows Hospital (RMH). The ongoing provision of community-based primary care obstetric services has always been a high priority of the Division. While provincially there is major concern over the ability to provide this service as the number of providers has decreased by more than half over the last 10 years, at Ridge Meadows Maternity clinic the number of primary care obstetric physicians has increased with the addition of Dr. Simone Loch and Dr. Paul Sidhu. The clinic team is excited about the possibility that Dr. Andel Kok will soon join them. Dr. Craig Lytle withdrew from the obstetric service this year after more than three decades of delivering babies at RMH. His wit, wisdom and friendship will be missed but all wish him many years of happiness and health enjoying his travels and growing family. The clinic’s participation in the “MoreOB” program won the RMH maternity ward an award and resulted in improved teamwork and patient care. The maternity clinic has provided obstetrical care in the community for almost 10 years, with an estimated more than 4,000 deliveries. Currently, there are over 300 maternity patients attending the clinic. LOOKING FORWARD:

The key challenge will be to find sustainable funding for the clinic as recent changes have resulted in increased costs for staffing and other

operational needs. It is hoped the temporary support of the Attachment initiative will allow the Division to identify the needs of the “mother-child dyad” in the area. Knowing these will enable the Division to focus on meeting and surpassing them for the benefit of the mothers-to-be. The clinic’s other commitment will be to improve the communication and coordinate “mother-child dyad’s” care with the family physicians, consultants and the RMH acute care facility. The plan is to use electronic transmission of information not only from

The RMMC physicians and staff sincerely thank the Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice, Fraser Health Authority (FHA), the Ministry of Health, its many family physician colleagues and especially the patients for the privilege of providing compassionate competent primary obstetric care in the community.

Home Health Initiative Goals/Description: Improve working relationships with long term care providers in the community to better patient care. Due to a complex mixture of challenges, the home health initiative has not moved ahead as expected. The board will continue to work with Fraser Health in the hope that the collaborative spirit that allowed the group to implement the initiative will enable it to get it back on track. If anyone has any comments, please share them with Dr. Neufeld.

Health and Wellness Initiative Goals/Description: Provide education, venues for connecting with colleagues, and one-on-one support to any local physicians. The physician wellness initiative, funded through 2014 by the Fraser Health Authority, continues to be active in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, with support from the Ridge Meadows Division. The Ridge Meadows group co-sponsored a faceto-face meeting in Vancouver with other champions in physician health from across the province. Dr. Marg Dogherty, president of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and a keen advocate of physician wellness herself, led an insightful session.

Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice Annual Report 2012


YEAR HIGHLIGHTS:

• In November 2012, over 50 local physicians gathered at the Maple Ridge Arts Centre and Threatre in the midst of severe weather for a cocktail and appetizer reception and an interactive session on “The Meaning of Happiness”. • The annual Physicians Walk/ Cycle Community Fundraiser in May 2013, organized by the Division, was partially funded from the physician wellness budget, and included live entertainment for children and adults, as well as a buffet lunch at the Maple Ridge Equestrian Centre.

• In June 2013, Dr Michelle Little led a ‘getting to know you’ team-building workshop with the Ridge Meadows Hospital hospitalist physician group, which served to improve connectedness and community within this group. • A dinner theatre evening was held in July at the new arts venue, Theatre in the Country, featuring a local physician in a performance of My Fair Lady. • Another education session will likely take place in autumn 2013.

SUCCESSES:

The physician wellness initiative is a classic example of how leadership from the Division, together with health authority support, can improve and enhance the community in which Ridge Meadows physicians live and practice. LOOKING FORWARD:

It is hoped the region’s physicians continue to support and help each other through both triumphs and challenges ahead. The Division is always open to ideas for wellness activities, volunteers and concerns members might have about themselves or their physician colleagues.

Community Services Partnership Initiative Goals/Description: Develop greater awareness, communication and referrals between community family physicians and local community services. YEAR HIGHLIGHTS:

• Maple Ridge Community Services provides numerous services to a range of patients, from children through to seniors, at zero or very low cost. • The Community Services Partnership has developed a simple referral and feedback process, which requires just one phone call or fax to access all services. YEAR SUCCESSES:

• The partnership has been trying to encourage Division members to refer patients to the Maple Ridge Community Services, as it would be very beneficial for their patients. Unfortunately this has not been very successful. The next step is to try reaching patients directly so they can request a referral from their family physician. A DVD promoting these services is now available for family physicians to display on their waiting room televisions. • Lead, Dr. Bhatti, extended his appreciation to Treena, Ward Tinney, and Vicki Kipps for their time and effort to improve the effectiveness of the program. LOOKING FORWARD:

Division members who have suggestions for improving the uptake for this program are encouraged to provide this feedback to Dr. Bhatti.

YEAR HIGHLIGHTS:

• The psychiatry initiative aims to help patients with mental health issues integrate back into the community, in the smoothest way possible. The goal is to work in close contact with the mental health teams and family doctors in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. • The Ridge Meadows Division is exploring a model to improve the level of communication between mental health workers and family physicians. It is hoped that increased discussions between these two health care professionals will help patients transition smoothly back into the community and resume their daily lives. • This project began with several meetings between Kenneth MacDonald, from the Mental Health Department of Fraser Health Authority, and Drs Kenneth Burns, Ward Tinney and Fernando Villasenor, from the Ridge Meadows Division. YEAR SUCCESSES:

Three doctors and three patients were selected to take part in the project. Each doctor was contacted and asked if they could in turn contact a mental health worker and discuss the best way to incorporate and transition one of the three selected patients from the hospital back into the community. This included the sociodemographics and treatment plan of the patient. Drs. Martin Milewski, Kathleen Robson, and Christopher Dodds were approached to participate in the initiative and they all responded in a very positive way. LOOKING FORWARD:

The committee will now arrange a meeting between the Mental Health Department and Drs. Milewski, Robson, and Dodds to seek their feedback. The committee feels very strong about the importance of this initiative and hopes that family doctors in the community welcome improvements and see the value they could bring to everyone involved.

Electronic Medical Records/ (PITO) Initiative Goals/Description: Encourage and support physicians to adopt EMR in their practices, leading to better patient care and efficiency. YEAR HIGHLIGHTS:

• The PITO sponsored educational sessions provided hands-on opportunities for physicians and medical office assistants (MOAs) at every level of capacity to come together to learn and support each other. • A significant highlight occurred when the trainer from UpToDate came from Phoenix, Arizona on her first trip to Canada. She was very impressed. Participants were thankful for her interesting and instructive presentation on the functionality of this Provincial Division-sponsored program that usually costs several hundred dollars a year but is free to Division members. At the meeting were local physicians from all specialties, as well as family practice members. The Ridge Meadows Division was the first to host this educational UpToDate event. SUCCESSES:

The Physician Office Integration (POI) program that integrates medical office EMR with acute care EMR at RMH is still the model for other areas of the province. The standard PITO are striving for is to receive all the information regarding members’ patients in any FHA acute care facility. LOOKING FORWARD:

The Community of Practice (CoP) has the option to merge with the Division in the future to some degree. Due to the current workload of the Division’s administration and the FHA regional administration’s advice, it has been suggested to start fresh in the fall with new leadership, members and goals for the Ridge Meadows CoP. This will be a great opportunity for members, specialist colleagues and the Division’s administration to work collectively on yet to be determined issues.

A GP for Me Initiative Goals/Description: Over the next three years, conduct research to evaluate the number of people looking for doctors in their community, the needs of the local family physicians, and the strengths and gaps in local primary care resources. Develop a community plan for improving local primary care capacity, including a mechanism for finding doctors for patients who are looking for one.

A GP FOR ME EVENT — APRIL 2013

YEAR HIGHLIGHTS:

After the Minister of Health announced every citizen of B.C would have a GP if they wanted one, the Division is working to try and achieve this goal. On April 13, the Division held a major event that brought the co-chairs of the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC) to Maple Ridge to present to members and their staff the logistics of A GP for Me, also known as the Attachment initiative. It is not a simple program. Dr. Bill Cavers did a great job helping everyone understand the initial components of it. Many more meetings will be needed to clarify how the program will look in this area but it was a spectacular start.

Left to right: Dr. John Hamilton, Kelly McQuillen (GPSC Co-Chair for the Ministry of Health) and Dr. Shiraz Mawani.

SUCCESSES:

• The application for early adoption funding for the Ridge Meadows Maternity Clinic was granted. The next step is to focus on understanding the FP needs of the “mother/child dyad” and looking for ways to provide for those needs through the maternity clinic. • The Division’s application for the first year of the three-year Attachment initiative has also been funded. The initial year will be an information gathering exercise to determine the community’s needs and the members’ capacity.

Left to right: Drs. Louise Fetaz, Catherine Pattinson and Hendrick Henstock.

LOOKING FORWARD:

When funding is received, the Division’s administration will expand to include another project manager and an administrative secretary. They will do the leg work necessary for this initiative. The Division will still need members’ time, talent and enthusiasm to make this project a reality. Left to right: Drs. Lakshmi Challa and Ken Burns.

Nurse Practitioner — Homeless/ Mentally Ill Initiative Goals/Description: Homeless and people living with chronic mental disorders are at higher risk for acute and chronic medical conditions. They face significant barriers to accessing primary care, resulting in increased use of acute care services. This NP proposal is a collaborative effort between the Ridge Meadows Division of Family Practice, Mental Health and Substance Use Program FHA and community stakeholders to establish medical linkages for homeless and chronic mentally ill population in Ridge Meadows. YEAR HIGHLIGHTS:

Fraser Health recently funded a nurse practitioner to offer primary care to local homeless and chronically mentally ill patients. The board worked very hard with a number of stakeholders, including the Salvation Army, the Municipality of Maple Ridge, the City of Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge Mental Health, the local Home Care Office and the RCMP. The Division also had support from local MLA Mr. Marc Dalton. This group collaborated to produce an application for funding that was successful in a very competitive arena.

SUCCESSES:

Janet Rosenfeld is now working from an office in The Caring Place, offering primary care to a very difficult to treat population. She is also supplying the primary care needs for patients with chronic mental illness who do not have a local family physician. She is being mentored by Drs. Neufeld, Bhatti, Beckett, Burns and Luitingh. If any members are interested in helping, the team would love to hear from them.

Nurse Practitioner — Frail Elderly Initiative Goals/Description: Working with the PATH unit team, the NP will develop a health plan that can be followed through transition home until the patient is reconnected with the primary care provider. The NP will work with GPs and Hospitalists to gain their input, connect the patient to community services, adjust as necessary any medical management as required and be the bridge from acute to community. Overall goals are to reduce the amount of returns to the hospital, especially in the first 30 days of discharge.

YEAR HIGHLIGHTS:

A successful proposal was approved by the Ministry of Health May 2013 awarding our community with an NP supporting Frail Elderly for 3 years. SUCCESSES:

A supportive Community Stakeholder Meeting was held with over 20 participants including the District of Maple Ridge, City of Pitt Meadows, Comfort Keepers, Nurse Next Door, Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows Community Services, Alouette Addictions, Home Health, RMH Hospitalists, Division Member GPs, and Salvation Army. LOOKING FORWARD:

The Division is working with Dr. Grace Park, our Members and the Hospitalists to work out the best process for the NP. Next steps are hiring the NP, as well as working out the GP financial support to the NP through GPSC.

Recruitment/Retention of Physicians Initiative Goals/Description: Recruit physicians to the Ridge Meadows region to meet the needs of the growing population and replace the 30 per cent of members retiring within five years. YEAR HIGHLIGHTS:

The Division heard from many members through conversations, surveys and meetings that physician recruitment and retention is a priority. The Division has made dedicated efforts in this area for the past 12 months and has had good steady success. Strong partnerships have been created with Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge Tourism, Economic Development, Municipalities, the city, schools, hotels and realtors in order to showcase this beautiful community to family physicians who may be interested in moving to Ridge Meadows. SUCCESSES:

• The Division talked to 16 interested physicians, of whom seven visited/interviewed in Ridge Meadows and four accepted positions as a locum or physician.  The Division will continue to put resources towards this initiative and bring committed future physicians to the area. • In honor of retention efforts, the Division launched a welcome group, hosting lunches welcoming new family physicians, spouses and their families. This welcome group has been a great benefit to connect new family physicians to the community socially and providing awareness of what the area offers. The Division always welcomes new family physicians to board meetings, board welcome lunches and member socials as a way to meet the medical community. LOOKING FORWARD:

The Division is looking forward to learning what the Ridge Meadows community needs are as it embarks on the A GP for Me initiative. This data will help look at additional strategies and ideas to increase physician recruitment to Ridge Meadows.

Treasurer’s Report:

Dr. Virin Bhatti

The Division had another successful year with a balanced budget. It was a challenge to resist requests for funding from many organizations. The audit was completed without any hitches, thanks to the excellent bookkeeping by Leanne Regan. The Division made some improvements in its bookkeeping and in future will be able to keep track of expenses for individual initiatives. The Division’s finances are becoming more complicated with funding coming in for Shared Care and Attachment initiatives. A special thank you to Treena Innes and Leanne Regan for their hard work in keeping Division finances straight and putting up with my penny pinching ways. It has been a pleasure working with the board members.
