Conference Board of Canada, 2012
This first in a series of four briefings in the Improving Primary Health Care through Collaboration series aims to provide an analysis of the impact of inter-professional teams on the Canadian primary health care system. It offers a general overview of the various inter-professional primary care (IPC) team models currently used in Canada. Specifically, it documents the success of various forms of inter-professional collaboration as compared to individual practices. It systematically reviews the nature and outcomes of family health teams, nurse-practitioner-led clinics, community-led practices (eg community health centres) and integrated primary care networks in all provinces and territories.
