In their recent report to the provincial government on primary care reform, Patient Care Groups: A new model of population based primary health care for Ontario, Dr. David Price and Elizabeth Baker suggested a fundamental shift in how primary care is delivered, calling for a model where doctors would serve everyone in a geographic area and be organized under Patient Care Groups.
Price, Professor and Chair of McMaster’s Department of Family Medicine, was the Provincial Primary Care Lead and the Chair of the Provincial Expert Advisory Panel on Primary Care. The report, submitted to the Ontario government in May, outlined a plan for care to become more co-ordinated, equitable and accountable.
He will draw from the recommendations in that report and the reaction to it in a CHEPA seminar, titled Catching up to the rest of the world.
The seminar will be held Weds. Oct. 19, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., in CRL B-119. All are welcome to attend.
