Innovation in Primary Care

The Innovation in Primary Care series aims to foster collaboration and idea sharing among Chapters and among family physicians across the country so they can benefit from others’ experiences, knowledge, and best practices.

The series highlights local innovations and approaches to health care that are working well. Each Canadian case study focuses on a specific situation, including the problem addressed, strategies used, goals achieved, and lessons learned.

The College of Family Physicians of Canada and its Advisory Committee on Family Practice developed the series to give individuals and teams opportunities to showcase innovations in care that they have introduced in their local jurisdictions of practice and to open the possibility of scaling up these ideas. The series launched in January 2017 with its first issue, Effective Primary/Secondary Interface.

New release: The second issue, Caring for Unattached and Marginalized Patients, looks at innovative ways of providing care across a range of social circumstances. The cases featured are from Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador, Ontario, and Quebec. Check out the new issue below.

If you have an innovative model or practice that you would like to share, or if you would like to provide feedback on the series, please send an email to: [email protected].
