Supporting Quality Improvement in Primary Healthcare in Ontario

An evidence brief drawing on the best available research evidence about primary healthcare strengthening, an issue brief drawing on more than 40 key informant interviews, an issue brief that focused on the sub-topic of quality improvement, and a series of three stakeholder dialogues aimed to improve access to and the quality of primary healthcare across the country. This work addressed the overarching problem of limited or inequitable access to sustainable, high-quality community-based primary healthcare in federal, provincial and territorial publicly-funded health systems. (Dialogues held May 11, 2009, January 8, 2010 and June 21, 2010)
