BC Coalition of Osteoporosis Physicians

The British Columbia Coalition of Osteoporosis Physicians (BCCOP) was formed in 2018 to address deficiencies in osteoporosis care. The coalition brings together BC physicians, and allied health professionals, interested in representing patient care needs to those agencies responsible for making decisions on access to care. We collaborate with Osteoporosis Canada and others with similar agendas. Our funding is from government and health authority sources.

Our Members

Meet our wide range of physicians and allied health members who prioritize osteoporosis care for the people of British Columbia 

Osteoporosis Care Gap

In BC, like many other Canadian provinces, osteoporosis management is not a health priority despite the significant morbidity associated with this disease. We need access to diagnostic and therapeutic tools that align with clinical guidelines.

Our Advocacy Work

By providing a unified voice, we strive to advocate for patients with osteoporosis and positively influence osteoporosis management and treatment reimbursement policies in our province.
