Engagement Working Group

The VPSA Engagement Working Group (EWG), with diversified physician members across specialties from our three facilities and Vancouver Community, acts as the Facility Engagement Initiative’s steering committee. The group includes physicians from VGH, UBC Hospital, GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre and affiliated community physicians. The EWG is tasked through broad membership representation with ensuring the initiative’s overall strategy resonates with all.

This committee meets quarterly; sessional funding is provided.
