Surgery

Our vision for surgical care in BC is one where risk is minimized through evidence-based, data-driven programs, resulting in fewer complications and infections and better outcomes for the 200,000 British Columbians who undergo surgery each year.

We work to achieve this vision by focusing on innovative approaches,
improving teamwork and communication among surgical teams, tracking and evaluating patient outcomes, and disseminating best practices.
