Economic evaluation and cost valuation of a province-wide quality improvement initiative: a case study of 'Call for Less Antipsychotics in Residential Care' (CLeAR) in British Columbia

British Columbia has 62,000 people living with dementia and this number is expected to rise to 87,000 by 2024. A common challenge for many seniors is the behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia. In October 2013, the British Columbia Patient Safety & Quality Council (BCPSQC) launched its initial cohort of care homes participating in a 'Call for Less Antipsychotics in Residential Care' (CLeAR) quality improvement (QI) initiative in response to rising concerns over inappropriate antipsychotic use in residential care.

Measuring the impact of current and future harm reduction strategies in the ongoing opioid overdose epidemic in British Columbia

North America is currently experiencing an opioid overdose crisis and this has been particularly pronounced in British Columbia (BC). In this jurisdiction there has been a rapid increase in overdose deaths since 2012, which has largely been driven by an increasing concentration of synthetic and more potent opioids in the illegal drug supply market.

Moving beyond headcounts: improved physician workforce planning for primary care in BC

Consistent access to high-quality family medicine improves the health of the population and lowers the costs of health care. Reports of family medicine shortages and of difficulties in accessing family physicians are ubiquitous in British Colombia (BC). To address shortages and access challenges, the Ministry of Health needs a clear understanding of how many active family doctors are working within provincial borders, how many are providing comprehensive and patient-centered care, how they structure their practices, and how patients access (or do not access) the services they provide.

Utilizing a syndemic approach for population level prevention, care and treatment cascades of hepatitis C virus and related epidemics

Different distributions of social conditions, vulnerabilities, (e.g. drug use, mental illness) or other infections (HIV, HBV, TB), contribute to differences among populations affected by hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. The different distribution of these comorbidities drives differences in cascades of care (diagnosis, initiation of treatment, cure and retention in care).
