The Quality Prescribing Working Group (QPWG) creates feedback mechanisms that facilitate meaningful, evidence-based improvement in prescribing decisions and quality for medical care throughout British Columbia.
Portrait is a tool created to help family physicians in British Columbia review and assess their own prescribing practices. It provides a short, evidence-based educational message on various drug classes plus a graphical representation comparing their prescribing to that of their peers. Each Portrait is entirely confidential and will provide suggestions for practice improvement. This made-in-BC educational tool is available to all family doctors in BC and will be mailed to the address they have listed at CPSBC. If you are a family doctor in BC and would prefer to receive your Portrait by email please use this link to sign up: https://tinyurl.com/portrait-survey
The program is entirely voluntary and if you are a family doctor in BC and prefer to not receive a Portrait, please call: 604-822-4887 or fax: 604-822-0701.
