What is the CRMSEI and why should I be involved?
The Campbell River Medical Staff Engagement Initiative, funded by Drs of BC, is your voice. Through the Executive and Working Group, all acute care physicians, dentists, and allied health professionals (Midwifes/Nurse Practitioners) have the opportunity to have their voice heard at the local, regional and provincial level. Our mandate is focused on the patient and overall physician wellness.
How do I get involved?
Any one of the current executive or Working Group members would be glad to answer any questions and get you involved. Alternatively, the Executive Administrator, who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org has numerous informational resources that can be shared.
How do I apply for an Activity or Event?
The application is an Excel spreadsheet to auto calculate the proposed budget. All activities and events must align with the Facility Engagement.
