Team Primary Care – Training for Transformation is an initiative to enhance the capacity of interprofessional, comprehensive primary care (CPC[1]) practitioners through improved training, team supports and planning tools. Co-led by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and the Canadian Health Workforce Network in partnership with over 65 health professional and educational organizations across Canada, Team Primary Care is an interprofessional project of the Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine funded by the Government of Canada’s Employment and Social Development Canada program.

Team Primary Care supports projects that aim to create and improve interprofessional training and mentoring for primary care practitioners that will optimize comprehensive primary care.    

[1] For the purposes of this RFP, we define comprehensive primary care as: the type of care health care practitioners provide working collaboratively, committed to the delivery of continuity of care, to a defined practice population of patients/clients that spans across the life cycle, offered in multiple clinical and community settings, addressing a spectrum of health issues (from prevention to acute to chronic disease, intrapartum, emergency and palliative care).


As part of the Team Primary Care initiative, the Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine (FAFM) is launching an invitational call for proposals from select health practitioner groups involved in the delivery of primary care. The focus of this call for proposals is to develop curricula, micro-credentials and/or tools for their members practitioners to enhance the delivery of effective interprofessional practice in comprehensive primary care.

Educational proposals can be directed to those in training to become health practitioners or for those already in practice to enhance or focus their comprehensive primary care and interprofessional competencies.

Funded teams must agree to participate in the Team Primary Care Interprofessional Collaborative table where they will join others to discuss, share and align proposed educational initiatives.

The FAFM will fund only one project per practitioner groups. We strongly encourage and will help to support collaboration on one submission. Contact with the Team Primary Care Coordination Committee ([email protected]) is strongly encouraged.

Funding is available up to a maximum of $150,000 for each integrated primary care team-focused training project to:

Option a)          Develop new or adapt existing pre- or post-licensure curricula or training programs;

Option b)          Develop pre or post licensure CPC micro-credentials;

Option c)         Develop internships or field placements.

Project proposals with a focus on the following will be prioritized:

  • Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility
  • Cultural safety and humility practices that embed reconciliation according to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action
  • Team health, wellness and respect


 All proposals must meet the following requirements:

  • Develop an approach and work plan that demonstrates how the project will leverage the use of published/accredited/national or international endorsed competency frameworks and pedagogical approaches on comprehensive primary care that include interprofessional opportunities for learning with other healthcare practitioners.
  • Demonstrate how their proposed curriculum, micro-credentials and training programs align with the delivery of effective team-based comprehensive primary care.
  • Participate and interact with other Team Primary Care partners at its Interprofessional Collaborative Table to share learnings, align across projects and explore opportunities for spread and scale. This includes virtual attendance at planned webinars and meetings, and for two representatives of the project to attend an in-person at a 2-day conference at the end of the funding cycle (funding for travel and accommodations must be built into the proposal)
  • Provide a sustainability and scalability plan that includes the proposed way in which skills in comprehensive interprofessional teamwork will be embedded for your group of practitioners regionally or nationally;
  • Conduct a program evaluation aligned with and agree to participate and contribute to the overarching Team Primary Care evaluation process;
  • Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility
  • Cultural safety and humility practices that embed reconciliation according to the Calls to Action for Truth and Reconciliation
  • Team health, wellness and respect
