Primary Care Physicians Enabling Integrated Care
How could you benefit from this program?
Primary Care physician involvement and leadership are key to the successful development of integrated health care systems.
The Primary Care Physicians Enabling Integrated Care program has been created by the OCFP, in partnership with the Association of Family Health Teams (AFHTO), Ontario Medical Association (OMA) and Section on General Family Practice (SGFP). It provides supports for integrated health care teams (i.e., Ontario Health Teams) to host discussions on the engagement and development of physician networks/teams.
This program has been approved for Mainpro+ certification. We want to ensure our members can claim appropriate certified credits for time spent in these interactive and collaborative programs. This program will support these initial steps.
“To have a truly integrated local health system that results in best possible patient outcomes, collaboration among all physicians is necessary, but first you need to engage them in a meaningful way.”
– Dr. Amy Catania, Family Doctor, Hills of Headwaters OHT

While this program will support initial steps, we also know that many integrated health care teams (i.e., Ontario Health teams) already exist and offer exceptional applied learning opportunities. We want to support family physicians participating in these discussions to earn certified Mainpro+ credits. Please contact us for guidance on submitting a local application that will allow family physicians to earn Mainpro+ credits for your ongoing work.
