Workshop March 6: Moving towards a learning health care system in primary care in British Columbia

BC-PHCRN is hosting a post-conference workshop at the UBC Centre for Health Services and Policy Research (CHSPR) annual health policy conference, which is focused this year on the balance of public and private financing of health care. The workshop will be held at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront in Vancouver on Friday, March 6, 2020, from 1:30 to 4 pm. Cost is $75 ($50 for students).

The workshop will be a forum to discuss BC’s progress towards a primary care learning health system. It will involve an update on structures being developed to support learning in primary care such as incorporating patient-reported experiences and outcomes of care, information sharing capabilities, and findings from the latest learning cycle meant to inform primary care network (PCN) evaluation. Participants will share reflections on these structures in their context.

This workshop will be of interest to a variety of stakeholders, including those engaged in PCN operations, primary care clinicians, and researchers with an interest in learning health care systems and team-based primary health care.


At the end of this session, participants will:

  1. Identify structures and supports involved in a learning health care system;
  2. Provide their reflections on these structures in the development of a learning health care system in primary care.
