Speaker Series Video: Team-based Primary Care - The Alberta Way
On March 10, 2016, the Vancouver Division of Family Practice hosted a session on team-based primary care in Alberta. The session featured Dr Phillip van der Merwe from Alberta Primary Care Networks, who spoke about the evolution of primary care reform from 2003 until the present.
To share learnings from this event with members and other divisions, the Vancouver division partnered with the Kootenay Boundary division to create a video resource of the event. Division staff and physicians can watch the 40-minute video to learn:
What are primary care networks?
How do they work and how are they funded?
How is being a GP in a primary care network different from being a GP before networks were created?
What is working well for PCN members?
What are some challenges of PCN participation?
Has any evaluation research been undertaken on the effectiveness of networks?
