Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative

The Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative is aimed at developing and disseminating health information and clinical tools to support primary care providers.

The Centre for Effective Practice (CEP) has partnered with the Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP) and the Nurse Practitioners’ Association of Ontario (NPAO) on the Knowledge Translation in Primary Care Initiative. This multi-year initiative is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

PRIMARY CARE NEEDS ASSESSMENT

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 NEED YOUR INPUT

Help shape clinical tools that meet your clinical needs to support high-quality patient care.

TOPIC SELECTION PROCESS

To identify clinical areas for this Initiative, a topic selection process has been established. This process consists of a number of key steps and inputs as outlined including the nomination of potential clinical topics by key stakeholders or primary care providers.
