Effective Participation in New Models of Care: Primary Care Networks and Patient Medical Homes

BC-PHCRN is pleased to be hosting a post-conference workshop at the UBC Centre for Health Services and Policy Research annual health policy conference.

Friday, March 8, 2019
1:00 to 4:30 pm
$100 for conference attendees ($75 for students), or $125 as a stand-alone workshop. Lunch included for all options.

Team-based care is a vision for the future of primary care in British Columbia, which includes implementing patient medical homes (PMH) and primary care networks (PCNs) across the province. A PCN is a clinical network of local primary care service providers located in a geographical area, with PMHs as the foundation. A PMH is a family practice that operates at an ideal level to provide longitudinal patient care, and is the foundation of care delivery in an integrated system of primary and community care and PCNs in local communities. Family doctors are moving towards the PMH model of care in part by using patient data to inform and plan proactive care, and by participating in PCNs.

This workshop will help family physicians and policymakers to understand the tools and resources available to assist them in participating fully in PCNs and PMHs. It will also demonstrate how PCNs can be implemented and evaluated to ensure the new model of care continues to learn and improve from the data it produces.

Registration is open.
