About PCN 2
Family Physicians come together to support vulnerable patients in Vancouver’s Chinatown
Over the past year, the Vancouver Division has been engaging a Community of Practice (CoP) of family physicians who support Chinese-speaking (largely Cantonese and Mandarin) patients to provide culturally appropriate care.
Dr. Patrick Shiu
Our featured provider is Dr. Patrick Shiu from Keefer Medical in PCN 2's Chinatown neighborhood.
REACH Community Health Centre and Urgent and Primary Care Centre
Standing for Research, Education, and Action for Community Health, the REACH Centre was developed in 1960 by paediatrician Dr. Roger Tonkin.
PCN 2 Supports
Primary Care Network supports include interdisciplinary providers that will support Team Based Care and access to quality, comprehensive primary care for patients. PCNs are built on a strong foundation of Patient Medical Homes (PMHs), family practices that operate at an ideal level to provide longitudinal person-centred care.
Access to PCN Supports is limited and based on the program’s capacity as well as a clinic’s eligibility requirements. If you are interested in finding out more about PCN 2 supports and eligibility, please contact your dedicated community network manager above.
PCN 2 Steering Committee
The purpose of the PCN Steering Committee is to ensure that the local community has a voice in shaping primary health care in their community. The Committee supports the implementation of the approved Service Plan for their community. Our PCN Steering Committees include a patient partner advisory group that supports the inclusion of patient voices in PCN planning.
If you wish to get in touch with the steering committee, please contact your dedicated Community Network Manager (CNM) above.
