About Team Primary Care
Team Primary Care brings together 65+ health professional organizations to enhance the capacity of interprofessional comprehensive primary care (CPC) through improved training for practitioners, supports for teams, and tools for planners and employers.
Team Primary Care: Training for Transformation aims to set the foundation for a new mindset to solidify the need for team-based primary care and refresh the necessary training, which will ideally enable the health system reform needed to adopt the broad delivery of CPC. Ultimately, by better preparing the next wave of graduates, Canadians will have better access to equitable care close to home.
