How to See Care Differently: Primary




Inspiring a new lens on access and continuity! This workshop will inspire teams to think about how care is currently offered to patients in a primary care setting. By considering a clinical practice as a system, this session will actively explore how the design of those systems can influence change within and between clinics. It also challenges us to consider how the potential for system change can improve patient care. The goal of the session is for team members to see the primary healthcare system through a lens where access and continuity are paramount, to identify the gaps in the current system of care and create a vision for the future.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Articulate the need for improvements in access
  • Describe the gaps between the current and ideal state of the primary care system
  • Consider how the design of the current healthcare system must change to move closer to the ideal state
