If you are passionate about improving patients’ and providers’ experience of care and want to make a positive impact on physicians’ wellness and engagement, VPSA Engagement Projects funding is for you!

VPSA’s goal is to bring more physicians, nursing and allied health staff, as well as health care leaders, together to Connect, Collaborate and Care. Our Engagement Projects seek to provide funding for physician-led projects that will improve collaboration amongst facility-based physicians, across divisions and/or departments, or between facility- based and community physicians.

VPSA Engagement Projects funding is used to address health care providers’ and patients’ experience of care, the work environment, and overall cost effectiveness. Projects that engage other health professionals and/or health authority leadership are encouraged.
