Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP)
A position paper from the Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP) outlining a “bottom-up” approach based on hubs of care.

Structures proposed have the stated aim of improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction), improving the health of the populations and reducing the per capita cost of health care.
