A Check Up on Clinical Tools

The Centre for Effective Practice launched a Needs Assessment Survey in the Fall of 2014.  The purpose of this survey was to engage primary care providers (specifically family physicians and primary care nurse practitioners) to determine topics of interest, how best meet their information needs and communication preferences.  The results of this survey will help inform the development of clinical tools that are effective and relevant for primary care providers.


We have worked with clients from all sectors, we’re able to offer an even more tailored set of services specific to each sector – and industry’s – needs.
